Do you want to know more about your learners’ work related skills or LLN skills? The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is developing the comprehensive Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) for the Australian Government.
The FSAT is mapped against the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) for language, literacy and numeracy skills and against the Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework (CSfW) for employability skills.
Trials of FSAT have now commenced and will continue until mid 2015. Whilst ACER has received many expressions of interest in participating in the FSAT trials, more participants are required to undertake the assessments.
Please consider which ACSF or CSfW skill areas are most relevant to your clients and learners and then register and request trial logins. Providers receive reports of each learner’s performance against the skill in the relevant framework. Participation in the FSAT trials is suitable for your 2015 pre-training LLN assessment!
