This page displays all the available documents for Foundation English.
The qualifications available in which an award can be received are:
Foundation English TQA 2 provides for students' development as language learners. Students learn to create, analyse and respond to a wide range of texts, including literature, media and everyday texts. They work with print and non-print texts, including multimedia texts. There is emphasis on using texts to inquire into significant issues, using a range of texts to develop deeper understanding of each issue and learning to interpret texts from different perspectives. Students frequently work collaboratively in authentic contexts as they take increasing responsibility for their learning. Foundation English provides a pathway to English Communications TQA level 3 and English Studies TQA level 3.
Note: NEW COURSE - VERSION 2 - FOR USE FROM 1 JAN 2012.
The following processes will be facilitated by the TQA to ensure there is:
Process - Each provider will submit bodies of students' work sufficient to allow an assessment against a nominated range of criteria and the overall award to an annual review meeting organised by the TQA. The work, while not necessarily fully resolved, will be assessed by the provider against the range of nominated assessment criteria and the overall award. The TQA will give each provider guidance regarding the selection of students and the nominated criteria.
Each body of student work that providers submit to the meeting should include sufficient and appropriate material for judgements to be made about the student's standard of literacy skills.
The review meeting will provide advice about the provider's assessment standards. Providers are expected to act on this advice.
