Staff members and a network of tutors and support persons assist students in several ways.
Access to Courses is not limited based on age, gender, social or educational background. There are no specified educational prerequisites for Certificate level Courses. The Course Curricula emphasizes the outcomes of the learning. Delivery can therefore be adapted to accommodate the various learning styles of possible course participants. Language used shall be appropriate to the abilities of the learners and the outcomes of the study units. The courses are designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people only.
On enrolment, new students are asked to complete an information sheet to give some indication of their expectations and abilities. Students’ literacy skills will be assessed before and during the first study block by monitoring their ability to express themselves in writing and orally, both individually and in group discussion. Where necessary a student may be assessed orally or be given assistance to record or express their responses in writing or by other means. Students who have low literacy skills will be advised to undertake appropriate TAFE or other training.
