The Certificate in Language focuses on delivering practical language skills and everyday communication in both social and vocational settings.
Apart from acquiring practical and communicative language skills, VET Languages aim to increase your motivation to learn and encourage learners to continue Language classes to the senior levels.
Learners who have completed Certificate II in Applied Language at Year 9-10, will be able to proceed to Certificate III in Applied Language, or possibly take higher education Units.
Certificate programs are nationally recognised in Australia.
The VET Language qualification is designed for people who wish to learn a language for personal interest and development or to enhance career opportunities. Learning a language has been shown to have many benefits:
- enhancing creativity
- problem-solving ability
- literacy skills
- maintenance of cultural identity
Languages provide advantages for employment, with an increasing number of companies seeking bi/multi lingual services to remain competitive in a global marketplace. Languages increase the capacity to communicate in a range of forums and situations.
Courses are delivered using varied, innovative and appropriate training strategies and can include:
- role play/simulation
- practical demonstration
- group work
