If you know the basics of English, this course will help you to keep progressing your language skills with the next step in Spoken and Written English qualifications.
These classes are delivered in a relaxed and friendly environment where you will feel welcomed as you work on your English skills.
Advance your reading, writing, speaking, listening, pronunciation and grammar in a supportive environment as you complete activities as assessments, instead of taking formal tests.
Taught on-campus for 18 weeks, you will work very closely with our expert teachers, making sure you feel supported the entire time while you build your confidence. You will also receive up to 6 hours of career advice, a tutor, and 10 hours of class time per week.
You will have lots of opportunities to practice what you’ve learnt with a specialised program funded by the Australian Government that provides up to 650 hours of free training for eligible job seekers. You will receive training to help you improve your skills, confidence and access to education and job opportunities.
And when you’ve completed all of your activities, you’ll be given a certificate and you will be able to enrol in the Certificate II in Written and Spoken English, or even look for work in the community.
So, if you already have the basics of English covered, come and study a Certificate I in Written and Spoken English at TAFE Gippsland and step into the workforce sooner.
This course is delivered with a combination of online and on-campus workshops.
