Event description

Description

Since December 2016, the Foundation Skill Training Package (FSK) has undergone a major review to address identified industry concerns.

After much consultation with industry and other stakeholders, FSK v2.0 was redeveloped and released to ensure it reflects current industry needs and improves learning outcomes, with updates to units of competency and qualifications.

This interactive and practical workshop will cover:

• Why it is critical for VET educators to address LLN issues
• The purpose of the FSK
• How the ACSF underpins the FSK
• How to use the FSK to support LLN in your training
• What you need to know about the updated FSK:
- Status
- Changes to qualifications
- New and revised units of competency

The workshop will provide open discussion, hands-on activities, and tips and hints to effectively address and support learners with LLN needs.

It will also focus on the revised FSK v2.0, providing detailed information on how the changes enhance the units of competency and qualifications.

Session details of the Sydney workshop.

Upon completition of the workshop, you will receive an electronic Certificate of Attendance.
