For entry to Medical Administration Training courses, a student must be assessed for Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN capabilities).

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements

It is essential that students have the language, literacy, and numeracy (LLN) skills to allow successful participation in and completion of their enrolled course.

The Australian Core Skills Framework (ASCF) identifies five core skills as essential for individuals to participate effectively in the workplace and education sector.

These five skills are:

  • Learning
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Oral Communication
  • Numeracy

LLN requirements for successful completion vary from qualification to qualification. Core skill capability levels for courses delivered by Medical Administration Training (MAT) are outlined in the benchmarks table below.

See the ACSF Level Performance Indicators table below for further information on LLN and the ACSF Core Skills.

Part of MAT’s enrolment process is to determine a student’s currect LLN capabilities to compared to the benchmarks required for successful completion of a qualification.

If there is a gap between your current LLN capabilities and the course benchmarks, our LLN expert will look at what support we can provide to help you develop your skills to the required level to achieve competency.
