The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program provides language, literacy and numeracy training to job seekers who find it hard to get work. Job seekers are referred to the program by the Department of Human Services, Employment Service Providers including Remote Jobs and Communities Program.
SEE was previously known as the Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program has operated since January 2002 when the LLNP and the Advanced English for Migrants Program amalgamated to provide a more integrated management approach to addressing LLN needs among job seekers at the national level. The program is delivered nationally through face-to-face training by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). For those who are unable to physically get to a course training is also available by distance education or a mix of the two.
Eligible job seekers can receive up to 800 hours of free accredited training through the SEE program. Training is delivered flexibly through full-time or part-time hours (10-25 hours per week) and can also include a work experience component.
Foundation Skills Training Package
The Foundation Skills Training Package differs from all other training packages in that it is designed to work in combination with them to support the achievement of vocational pathways. Units and qualifications within the FSK Foundation Skills Training Package describe the skills and knowledge that underpin vocational performance. While these skills and knowledge are already described or implied within vocational competencies in other training packages, many learners fail to develop the required foundation skills through their vocational training programs. The FSK Foundation Skills Training Package provides an opportunity for RTOs to select and deliver foundation skills units and qualifications that will enable learners to build the specific foundation skills required to achieve vocational competency.
Foundation Skills Resources
There is a suite of resources to assist industry and Registered Training Organisations run WELL Programs. It is ideally suited for supporting core skills in the workplace without the specific need for a Language, Literacy and Numeracy expert. This comprehensive and easy to use WELL resource kit is mapped up to the Level 3 against the Australian Core Skills Framework. It is contextualised to the Community Services and Health industry, but flexible enough to be used in other industries.
