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.

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