Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN)

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program (LLNP)

The Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program (LLNP) seeks to improve participants’ language, literacy and/or numeracy, with the expectation that such improvements will enable them to participate more effectively in training or in the labour force and lead to greater gains for them and society in the longer term. The LLNP provides up to 800 hours of free accredited Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) training for eligible job seekers whose LLN skills are below the level considered necessary to secure sustainable employment or pursue further education and training.

Eligible job seekers are referred to a LLNP provider by Referring Agencies, currently Centrelink, Job Services Australia (JSA) providers and Disability Employment Service (DES) providers. More at DEEWR >>

The Disability Standards for Education

Disability Standards for Education were formulated under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and tabled in the Australian Parliament on 17 March 2005, with effect on August 2005. The Standards clarify the obligations of education and training (VET) providers to ensure that students with disabilities are able to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without disability.
