Statement on competency-based training

This nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualification is competency-based. This means that it is designed to enable you to develop skills and knowledge (competency) needed to perform the tasks you are training for.

Assessment in a competency-based program is about being able to demonstrate that you have developed these skills and areas of knowledge and that you can perform at the standard required at this level.

If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program e.g. through work experience, you can be assessed and have these skills and knowledge formally recognised at any point during the program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Employability Skills

In addition to developing skills and knowledge in the English language, this program also aims to help you to develop broad work skills, known as Employability Skills. There are eight employability skills:

  • communication
  •  teamwork
  • problem solving
  • initiative and enterprise
  • planning and organising
  • self-management
  • learning
  • technology

Employability skills are “embedded” in the units of competency in your program. When you demonstrate that you are competent in your English Language skills and knowledge, you are also demonstrating that you have developed relevant employability skills. Further information about the employability skills you will develop in this program is available at page 68 of EAL Frameworks Curriculum document Certificate III in EAL (Further Study).
