Initial placement will be reviewed and monitored with teachers after the first class. Please bring all relevant paperwork to the first interview (click on this link to get a list of documents to bring) so that our Adult Education Coordinator can discuss and confirm funding eligibility.

Course objectives - The Course in Preliminary Spoken and Written English and the Certificates I-III in Spoken and Written English provide a general education framework for learners to develop English language and literacy skills and optional numeracy skills to undertake further education and training, seek and maintain employment, and participate in the general community. The curriculum is used widely throughout Australia in the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP), the Adult and Community Education (ACE) sector, TAFE colleges, universities and private providers.
In the process of developing the above language, literacy and numeracy skills, learners are able to demonstrate competence in the following Certificate III AQF characteristics:
Assessment and certificates
Assessment - Assessment is conducted regularly throughout each course during class time in a supported environment. Classroom tasks and activities will be retained as proof of assessment.
Certificates - Upon successful completion of all assessments CCC will award a testamur for the qualification. If students exit prior to the completion of the full qualification they may be issued with either a Statement of Attainment or Statement of Results. A replacement certificate can be obtained on payment of a $100 administration fee
