About the course

Course Number: 10729NAT-01V01

10729NAT Certificate III in Spoken and Written English is a component of the Certificates in Spoken and Written English (CSWE), English as an additional language (EAL) curriculum framework. It is an intermediate course for learners who have had either formal or informal exposure to English and who have already developed a basic level of English language competence and numeracy skills, but require ongoing English language learning opportunities. It provides English language learning for EAL learners, primarily targeting newly arrived migrants and refugees who need to develop routine language skills to participate in a range of community, further training or employment contexts. The certificate also includes elective numeracy modules for those EAL learners who may need to develop routine numeracy skills. This course is intended to provide participants with the following general education outcomes: • English language proficiency at the equivalent of International Second Language Proficiency Ratings (ISLPR®) 3, +, International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 5.5, or Common European Framework (CEFR)B2 • English language proficiency to meet some performance features of Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) 3 indicators.
