All students have the right to education in an environment free of discrimination, harassment and injustice.
LANGUAGE, LITERACY & NUMERACY ASSESSMENT

Accordingly the standard of literacy and numeracy skills incorporated in the delivery and assessment of the courses are relevant to both the course and the workplace.
