A range of potential pathways are possible. Successful completion of these units within Certificates in EAL will be eligible for credit into other qualifications. Elective units from a particular qualification may provide a specific pathway to that qualification on completion.
Outcomes are designed for those who require consolidation of advanced level English speaking and listening, reading, writing, literacy skills including digital literacy skills, and study skills in English prior to accessing a range of further study pathways including higher education.
Participants include those who have already completed or partially completed further or higher education, those who wish to upgrade their qualifications and those wishing to enter higher level qualifications for the first time.
The purpose of this course is to develop communication and research skills and knowledge at a complex level, together with knowledge of the Australian education system.
It is expected that those who graduate from the Certificate IV in EAL (Further Study) will use their existing skills and knowledge in their language in the workplace, for example as interpreters and providing bilingual support, to gain access to further training to support employment.
