Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Capability Support
Is LLND Support for you?
Do you struggle with "Maths" and "English"? Is English your second (or 3rd or 4th) language? Do you feel like you've always been missing certain foundation skills needed to get your work done like how to measure, use a computer, use fractions, convert millimeters, construct a paragraph or find ways to express what you want to say in class conversations or oral presentations?
If you answered yes to any of these, you may have gaps in your language, literacy or numeracy skills. And that's ok! People have gaps in their foundational skills for all sorts of reasons; war, poverty, sickness, long absences at school or simply being more "left brained" or "right brained". Whatever the cause, we're glad you've figured out now that it's time to close those gaps once and for all!! You're in the right place!
What Support is Available?
The Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Capability Support (LLND Support) service is designed to assist students, who have gaps in their prior learning, with foundation skills to complete their coursework and succeed in the workplace.
The program focuses on vocational reading, writing, numeracy (maths) and communication (speaking, presenting and listening) skills. The LLND Support service is flexible, and provides help in classrooms alongside vocational teachers, one on one and in small group tutorials both online via MS Teams or face to face in one of our campus libraries.
Sounds great! How do I access the service?
Some students are contacted by a teacher from the LLND Support team at the start of their courses; based on the results of the Core Skills Diagnostic Profile that they completed when they applied for their program of study. LLND Support teachers usually contact these students within their first four weeks of study and maintain close contact throughout the duration of a student's course.
Other students self-refer to the service and others are referred by their teachers. Students in this category self-identify that they have gaps in their foundational skills that are preventing them from really understanding what's being asked if them in their units of study and associated assessment tasks.
The third way for students to access this service is to be referred by their teacher. Teacher referrals are common and may request support for an individual, small group or entire class. The LLN team's job is to help these students fill in these gaps to ensure a long and happy study and employment journey.
Awesome! How do I get in touch?
LLND Support Teachers can be contacted by email and meet with students in class, in the Student Hub, in the campus libraries or via video-conferencing using Microsoft Teams.
