Program Benefits

To support each participant’s LLND skills learning needs, the Foundation Skills for Your Future program provides flexible training options for eligible participants, that are aimed up to a Certificate II level.

To support them in the workplace, eligible employed, or recently unemployed, Australians can undertake fee-free* accredited and non-accredited training to improve their English, oral and written communications skills, reading skills, mathematical skills, and digital literacy skills.

Employers or industry organisations who identify employees with LLND skills development needs, can engage TAFE NSW to develop tailored accredited and/or non-accredited training for the workplace by:

  • identifying workplace and employee LLND skills needs
  • collaborating to develop a training model that supports the workplace environment
  • supporting participants to maximise the training benefits
  • supporting the evaluation of the effectiveness of the LLND skills training

If you are an employer looking to develop your workforce to meet current and future skills needs, contact us to discuss how we can work with you to develop tailored training that meets your workplace needs.
