Avante Education conducts a comprehensive Pre-Training Review (PTR) for all prospective Learners to determine whether a course is suitable and appropriate for their individual needs.
As part of the PTR process, we include an evaluation of a prospective learner’s digital literacy (PC Skills) to ensure that they will be successfully able to complete a course with an online component.
Also, it is a requirement that all learners meet the minimum requirements of Avante Education’s Student BYOD (Bring your Own Device) Policy. The BYOD information can be found at here.
For Learners who are enrolling into a course that involves PC literacy (such as accessing information online, or completing learning activities or assessments online or submitting assessments via the portal, the Learners must have their PC skills evaluated as part of their language, literacy and numeracy skills (LLN).
We use an online LLN tool which requires Learners to undertake basic PC skills in order to complete the evaluation. This includes, but is not limited to:
Learners who meet the minimum requirements for the LLN evaluation for their course will be considered to meet PC literacy requirements.
Learners who do not meet the minimum requirements for the LLN evaluation will be evaluated individually to see whether they meet PC literacy requirements.
Avante Education provides a digital library via the online Learner portal. Each Learner will be allocated a username and password at induction and will provide training and IT support staff to induct Learners on the platform.
