The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program is funded by the Australian Government and provides language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment and training to eligible job seekers, with the expectation that such improvements will enable them to participate more effectively in training or the labour force.

22235VIC Certificate I in General Education for Adults (Introductory)

Each of these qualifications provide learners with low levels of literacy and numeracy the opportunity to build confidence, re-engage with learning and further develop the digital literacy and employability skills required for effective participation in the workplace or further education.
