Teachers in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Programs (LLN) develop and effectively implement training, with emphasis on improving student outcomes in the areas of literacy and numeracy. They deliver literacy and numeracy education that meets the needs of individual learners and reflects best practices in the industry.
LLN Teachers teach at a high level of competence, using and applying adult learning principles and practices. They identify education and training curriculum and resources suitable for the learners, and use available testing materials to establish existing benchmarks. They also undertake initial and ongoing literacy and numeracy assessments of learners and contribute to the evaluation of outcomes achieved through the delivery of education.
LLN Teachers must have qualifications related to this area of expertise. They must also possess a current Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and relevant vocational competencies.
Furthermore, they need to demonstrate essential skills like high levels of teaching competence and effective working relationships with students, coordination of learning and learning environment, well developed problem-solving and decision-making abilities and high level of communication and report writing ability.
