Additional literacy and numeracy support for apprentices and trainees
All apprentices and trainees are eligible to access additional tutorial assistance in the form of literacy, numeracy and study skills where it is considered by the employer, apprentice or trainee or registered training organisation that such assistance is needed for the individual to successfully complete training.
The Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program (LLNP)
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.
Workplace English Language and Literacy Program (WELL)
The main aim of the WELL Program is to assist organisations to train workers in English language, literacy and numeracy skills. This funding is available on a competitive grants basis to organisations for English language and literacy training linked to job-related workplace training and is designed to help workers meet their current and future employment and training needs.
