Language Literacy Numeracy Assessment – How will you assess me?

The TAELLN411 is a practical unit: you work with a suitable candidate, for example someone who needs support with their reading, writing or numeracy or general communication skills.  Remember that the focus of the TAELLN411 online course is not on non-English speaking learners, you will find an ample supply of native English speakers who desperately need your help.

When you find one, you start by determining what level of assistance the person needs. You do this by referring to the ACSF (Australian Core Skills Framework).  The framework simply establishes a “common language” for all VET trainers and a common denominator to describe the level of their learners.

Once you have determined the level of assistance needed, you then look at the level of literacy, numeracy and reading required by the training specification (another big word for standard).  This can be a workplace standard or a unit of competency.

For example let’s say that your friend Aristotle agrees to be your student and Aristotle works in an ice-cream factory, you would be seeking the cooperation of his line manager or supervisor, or the human resources department (all this with the written authority of Aristotle).

It is not difficult to find students, we have several hundred students who are studying the TAELLN411 Online Course and they all have found grateful students.  

If you do not have access to a workplace environment, contact a voluntary organisation that offers free support to non-English speaking people or refugees.  You could also choose to help a friend, neighbour or family member.  As mentioned there is no shortage of candidates.

If you are still having difficulties finding a suitable learner for your TAELLN411 Online Course contact student support and they will help you get some ideas.


The assessment process for the TAELLN411 Online Course

Because this is primarily a practical unit the assessment process is also practical in nature. You will receive a third-party report template.  A third-party observer will complete this report which you include with your written submission.

If you prefer, you can send a video instead of a third-party report: many of our students do so.

Your learner can (optional) fill in a feedback report.  We encourage you to ask your learner for feedback because this evidence is beneficial to you and to your tutor.  Additionally you could include the (positive) feedback in your portfolio.

If you are a mum at home, or in between jobs, you could easily complete the unit with the assistance of a friend or relative in one or two sessions.  We suggest to our course participants to choose uncomplicated training specifications.


What happens if I fail the TAELLN411 Online Course?

Competency-based courses do not involve “pass or fail”.  If the evidence you produce does not yet meet the standards required, your tutor will discuss these gaps with you, and encourage you to correct the gaps.  

You have 12 months within which to complete the program.  Most student complete the program in 4 to 8 weeks.  

We encourage you to take your time learning this unit.  Rather than opting for “quick” programs which do not benefit your career, we strongly advise our learners to research the ACSF thoroughly. Your professional career will benefit greatly and you will earn the respect of your employers.
