Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment
Every student must do a LLN check before we enrol you on the course. When you are working you must be able to read important documents like health and safety notes and follow written instructions. You must be able to write down information for your fellow workers too. If we think you need some support with the reading and writing, then we can help!
Recognition of Prior Learning
As a student undertaking training with Quest you can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), which means recognising competencies or skills you may currently hold, regardless of how, when or where your learning occurred. Competencies may be attained in a number of ways. This includes through any combination of formal or information training and education, work experience or general life experience. In order to grant RPL, the assessor must be confident that you are currently competent against the industry or enterprise competency standards or outcomes specified in Australian Qualification Framework accredited courses. The evidence may take a variety of forms and could include certification, references from past employers, testimonials from client and work samples. The assessor must ensure that the evidence is authentic, valid, reliable, current and sufficient.
If you would like to apply for RPL please speak with our administration staff during the registration process and they will explain the process for you.
