Everyone uses LLN skills every day for a variety of purposes – personal, social and work. Different tasks and contexts need different types of reading, writing, listening, speaking and numeracy skills, so people need to continually develop and adapt these skills to suit new situations.

Every learner in vocational education and training (VET) takes on new LLN challenges or, at the very least, uses their existing LLN skills in different ways. Many VET learners have not completed any post-compulsory education or training and they may not have experienced competency-based assessment. Some learners may have limited experience in using communication or numeracy skills in a workplace.

As a vocational trainer your role is to help learners to develop and demonstrate their vocational skills and knowledge. LLN skills are an integral part of vocational competence, and so you also need to help learners to adapt and use their LLN skills to meet the demands of their vocational training and the workplace. Nationally, there has been growing awareness that people need to develop their LLN skills not only at school but across the whole of their life. To make sure that learners’ LLN skills are addressed in their VET experience, changes are being made to the TAE10 Training Package. In future, all trainers working in the Australian VET system will need to have the skills and knowledge needed to address LLN skills as part of their vocational training and assessment.
