Foundation Skills Assessment Tool

college news

We are pleased to announce that we will be taking advantage of the Department of Education and Training’s new interactive online Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) to identify and measure our student’s foundation skill levels (English language, literacy and numeracy skills as well as employability skills).

It is a requirement of all units of competency that the student is assessed not only on the skills and knowledge required to perform the tasks outlined in the training package but also on the underpinning literacy, numeracy and work skills.

Over the next few weeks Kim will be assisting all students to access this tool and perform the assessments.

Each student will be given a report on the outcomes of the assessment. If further training is evident from the assessment we will take actions to work with the student to increase their skills.

You can read more about this tool at https://www.education.gov.au/foundation-skills-assessment-tool

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask Kim.

Merry Christmas to you all

college news

2016 has been a year of highs and lows for all involved at Astute Training.

From the magical moments of seeing so many of our students gain permanent residency, to the times of personal sorrows experienced by students and staff alike we have seen one thing shine through above all others…the compassion and care that our Astute Family surround each other with.

Our staff strive to ensure that the student journey is made as easy as possible, but that journey is enhanced a thousand fold by the camaraderie and friendship between students.

Thank you all for making our year fun, adventurous and fulfilling.

We hope you all will have a wonderful holiday break and return again to us in 2017 refreshed, relaxed and re-energised!

Merry Christmas to you all.
