How to design, develop and implement LLN assessments

23 June 2021

Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) skills are now recognised as fundamental to improved workforce participation, productivity and social inclusion. Every workplace task involves reading, writing, speaking, listening and mathematical skills. Learners who have limitations in one or more of these core LLN skill areas, will have difficulty participating in training programs and in achieving necessary workplace skills.

The development of relevant LLN skills at the appropriate level should therefore be seen as an integral component of a trainer’s practice, as they need to ensure that LLN skill development occurs, to maximise all learners’ chances of a successful outcome against the training specification requirements. As such, it is important that LLN assessments are designed, developed and implemented effectively.

This webinar explores the steps involved in creating new LLN assessments (both generic and contextualised) and deploying them as a tool for identifying learner needs and supporting growth in the development of required LLN skills.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Identify the key steps involved in designing new LLN assessments
  • Review an ideal structure for the creation of LLN assessments
  • Use the ACSF to underpin the development of LLN assessments at different levels
  • Identify how to have new LLN assessments validated
  • Describe how to implement the LLN assessment process.
