English, Languages and Foundation Studies

This group of courses are designed to provide support and assistance to specialist groups. Some can give you a pathway into further training – for example; if you want to do an apprenticeship but need to improve your language or literacy skills or grow your confidence in using computers; or a pathway into employment if you have been out of the workforce for a while and need to refresh your employability skills and catch up with the world of work. 

There's also a range of English and language studies courses cater to and those who come from non-English backgrounds and want to learn to understand, speak, read and write English, or those who would like to improve their language and/or literacy skills.  For people who did not gain a qualification at high school, never had the opportunity to finish year 12, or feel they left school too long ago, there's the Certificate in General Education courses. 

As well as the qualifications listed here, other learning support programs are also available for eligible students – more information on these learning support programs is available here
