Address Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills TAELLN411

We are seeing more and more high school graduates leaving school without the necessary level of language, literacy and numeracy skills needed to meet the ever increasing needs of the workplace.

Every learner in the vocational education sector is faced with new language and literacy challenges and, as a vocational trainer, you need to be able to help your learners foster and make evident these skill sets because they are such a fundamental part of vocational competence.

The unit TAELLN411 will soon become mandatory for all vocational trainers. The unit describes the skills and knowledge a vocational trainer or assessor requires to identify language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skill requirements of training and the work environment, and to use resources and strategies that meet the needs of the learner group. The unit applies to individuals who teach, train, assess and develop resources.

What will I need to do in the TAELLN411 unit?

  • Use tools to identify the LLN skill requirements (reading, writing, speaking, listening and numeracy) of the training specification and/or assessment process relevant to vocational delivery.
  • Use various sources to gather information on the current LLN skills of a learner group.
  • Identify available sources of support to address at least two of the identified LLN skill needs of the learner group.
  • Customise and use at least two learning resources to address LLN requirements.
  • Select, use and review at least two instructional strategies that directly address the identified LLN needs of the learner group.
  • Use advice from specialist LLN practitioners to inform practice.
  • Select, use and review at least two assessment strategies that cater for the identified LLN needs of the learner group.
  • Determine areas for improvement of own practice.

How will I Learn?

Competency based assessment will be conducted through theory tasks, projects and practical demonstration. The training will be delivered in the College’s fully equipped training rooms by our qualified and industry experienced trainer/assessor.


Prospective students must have a competent level of language and literacy to participate in this course.

National Recognition

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) - is a means of measuring skills acquired through work or life experiences or through qualifications obtained from formal studies or training. Any student who believes they may be eligible for RPL must apply for this at least two weeks prior to the course commencing. If you apply after the course commences it may not be accepted.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From 1 January 2015 it is a requirement of the Federal Government that all students undertaking nationally recognised training will need to obtain a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This involves an easy online application. See USI Fact Sheet for information on how to apply for a USI – go to the Unique Student Identifier (USI) Website for additional information.

Please ensure when completing your enrolment information, that the details relating to your name are identical to those on the identification evidence used (eg passport or driver’s licence) when creating your USI eg no abbreviations or nicknames should be used.

Once created, it is important that you keep a record of your USI and access to your accredited training records in a safe place. You will need this information for any future enrolments into accredited training in Australia.

Assessments are made against units of competency.
