Are you interested in entering the aged care industry and building your core speaking, listening, reading, writing, and numeracy skills on aged care topic-based content?
Introduction to Aged Care is an ideal course to improve your industry-specific LN levels, particularly if you are below Level 2 on the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). It focuses on the literacy and numeracy contextualised for the aged care sector.
You will learn core speaking, listening, reading, writing, and numeracy skills, which we include in aged care topic-based content.
You will use a range of materials from the sector to complete set tasks during the course. Each topic addresses basic vocabulary that is useful across the aged care sector, which you will then apply to reading, writing, numeracy and oral communication tasks.
You will enhance your employability skills by participating in integrated learning activities.
