The VETASSESS Test is recognised on a national level and has been established to help Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) identify the literacy and numeracy competence of candidates for course entry. The VETASSESS Test is aligned to the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) which is the recognised standard for adult literacy and numeracy in Australia. The ACSF is the main assessment tool for the Australian Government’s Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program and the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) Program. It provides a consistent national approach to help identify and develop the core skills in three key areas:
- personal and community
- workplace and employment
- education and training.
For more information on whether you need to complete the VETASSESS Test please contact your RTO.
