Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements

Mandatory entry requirements

  • For each Learner enrolling in a vocational qualification, regardless of eligible or ineligible status under the Victorian Training Guarantee, Federation Training will conduct a Pre-Training Review of current competencies (including literacy and numeracy skills) prior to commencement in training.

The Pre-Training Review will:

  • identify any competencies previously acquired (Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) or Credit Transfer);
    ascertain the most appropriate qualification for that Learner to enrol in, including consideration of the likely job outcomes from the development of new competencies and skills; and
  • ascertain that the proposed learning strategies and materials are appropriate for that individual.
    When the Pre-Training Review identifies that a Learner may not have the Foundation skills required, the Learner will be referred to an Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) specialist for an assessment against ACSF core skills of learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy.

When a gap exists between the Learner’s assessed ACSF level and the ACSF levels required within the vocational qualification (whether in any one, or a combination, of ACSF-assessed skills), Federation Training will recommend appropriate strategies for the Learner.
