CSU's Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy offers a dedicated focus on delivery of language, literacy and numeracy teaching and support in adult education in TAFE institutes, adult and community education providers, industry settings and private providers.

  • Why study this course?

    CSU's Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy provides students with skills to teach in a range of discrete and integrated adult language, literacy and numeracy programs within the adult and vocational education sector including TAFE, other registered training organisations, community colleges and industry. Adult language, literacy and numeracy courses are studied by a diverse range of students in a variety of locations. All students have one thing in common –  the desire for a program that provides material that will help them in their current workplace or a future position, and will equip them with the expertise they require to be effective adult language, literacy and numeracy teachers.

    Students will gain skills in teaching and learning, assessment and evaluation of adult language, literacy and numeracy training programs. They will develop an understanding of the broad socio-economic and political context in which adult and vocational education is located and an awareness of the value of lifelong learning. Graduates have the ability to analyse and think critically and constructively about current developments in adult language, literacy and numeracy education. They have expertise in communication in face-to-face and digital teaching and learning environments, including mastery of appropriate technologies, and research skills that enhance professional and workplace practice.

    Flexible study options

    This course is offered online, providing students with the flexibility to study at a time and place that suits their lifestyle, with access to a wide range of learning materials, support and communication tools online. Students may choose to exit this course after the completion of four 8 point subjects with the Graduate Certificate in Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy.

  • Career opportunities

    CSU's Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy equips graduates with advanced skills in language, literacy and numeracy to enhance teaching in their technical or vocational area. Graduates develop the skills to teach with providers of adult and vocational education, including TAFE institutes, other registered training organisations, community colleges and industry. They may take on positions such as teachers, trainers, lecturers, learning facilitators or vocational education consultants.

  • Workplace learning
    Working with Children Check

    All teacher education students in Australia must comply with the working with children legislation requirements of the state / country of where their placement is occurring. Students will be required to provide evidence to the Faculty of Arts and Education’s Professional Experience Unit of a Working with Children Check (WWCC) clearance letter prior to undertaking any placement in a school or early childhood service. The checks are intended to identify people who have convictions for such things as violence or sexual offences and who may put clients'/children’s personal safety or health at risk. Traffic violations and other minor offences are not of interest.

    Prospective students should be aware that not passing a Working with Children Check will make it difficult for them to complete a teacher education course satisfactorily because of the unavailability of suitable school or preschool professional experience placements.

    The Working with Children Check expires every five years. You will be required to ensure it remains current and valid to the end of the final placement in the course. Please note that a WWCC can take an extended period of time, so it is recommended that you commence the process early to prevent timing problems. The Australian Institute of Family Studies provides useful information and links relevant to the Australian states and territories. Information on the current Working with Children Check must be uploaded to the student’s information site on InPlace.
