To successfully complete this course, you will need:

  • Language and literacy levels of ACSF 3 and above, which are sufficient to interpret increasingly complex and unfamiliar documents, analyse texts and prepare written communications.
  • TAFE NSW requires that potential students undertake LLN screening through RU Ready, participate in an interview and complete a writing task (this process determines whether students have the level of skills and knowledge required to complete the course in the required timeframe ensuring this course is an appropriate pathway).
  • Students must achieve results that show they are working within or above ACSF level 3 or entry will not be granted. Certificate III in Pathways to Further Study is a Year 11 equivalent course and as such achievement of Year 10 is a suitable access point but not required.
