CHT is committed to providing high quality training that aligns with industry and community demands and workforce needs. CHT is also committed to ensuring the best possible education, employment, and training outcomes for our learners. As a part of the application and enrolment process, all learners complete a pre-training review (PTR). This review ensures that individual learners are enrolled into the most suitable and appropriate qualification. It is also an opportunity for CHT to understand the learner’s individual needs and requirements, their current competencies that relate to the course and to identify opportunities for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfers The information gained from the PTR helps CHT design a learning and assessment strategy appropriate for the learner. CHT uses this review to provide the learner with the educational and support services they may need while studying to ensure they can achieve the best outcomes and benefits from the course they are enrolling in, according to their learning objectives, career aspirations and skill level.
Literacy and numeracy
Learners will be required to undertake a Language, Literacy, and Numeracy (LLN) assessment to determine their ACSF level. The LLN assessment identifies the learner’s current LLN skill level to check whether they have the minimum skills required to successfully participate in the program and can develop the necessary employability skills. The assessment also identifies if LLN assistance will be required for the learner to undertake the course.
