What other options are available to schools to ensure students meet minimum literacy and numeracy for QCE?

Secondary schools are the primary education providers for teenage students. Their main focus is to ensure students achieve their Queensland Certificate of Education or QCE. This is internationally recognised ranking of senior schooling achievements. All schools need to satisfy this requirement in one way or another. Comprised of a wide range of learning options, students can choose one that suits their interests, current situation and career goals. This will then be considered in developing a Senior Education and Training (SET) plan. This provides structure for a student in terms of learning in Years 11 and 12. “Students who do not meet the QCE requirements at the end of Year 12 can continue to work towards their certificate after finishing Year 12, through the completion of additional learning such as vocational education and training courses or traineeships. Once eligible, students will be issued a QCE in the following July or December,” according to the Queensland Curriculum and Authority.

However, with the rising demand from universities and employers, getting high QCE points is becoming more competitive. Not meeting the minimum by the end of Year 12 is simply not an option for many students.

A student can take short courses or enrol in an FSK20113 program to achieve the set standard in literacy and numeracy. This is where a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) can help. A partnership with an RTO can open new opportunities for students, especially when the process is made flexible and adaptable for them.

Aside from assisting students in with QCE completion, FSK20113 also assist students in gaining new skills that will enable them to find employment after school and choose a career path for themselves.

 

What is FSK20113?

The course is ideal for students who want to improve their reading, writing, numeracy and oral communication skills. Designed for individuals who require further foundation skills development, it enables one to prepare for workforce entry or vocational training pathways.

 

Why Redmako?

Our FSK20113 course has been designed with a raft of different Training and Assessment Strategies that are flexible in meeting the differing requirements of schools. Whether this be a facilitated short intensive course, blended delivery or in partnership with the school. It is offered in three collaborative programs:
1. Blended course delivery – In a blended program, students get to work with a trainer and finish some of the study load online.
2. Partnership course delivery – The school teacher can take the lead as Redmako provides the resources for the course.
3. Full course delivery – If a school has no experience with FSK20113, Redmako can deliver it completely.

Normally, it takes 10 to 20 weeks to complete the course. Students in trouble of meeting their QCE points requirement at the end of Year 12 will appreciate attending the two- or three-week intensive course. They will be able to learn everything in a fast-paced and concentrated manner while ensuring their points requirement are met in time for graduation.
