Subject: Essential Skills - Numeracy course for comment
Date: June 13, 2012
To: TQA Co-ordinators, teachers of maths, and other interested parties
The Essential Skills - Numeracy course has been re-developed and is now ready for accreditation consideration. A copy of the course document is located on the website page: http://www.tqa.tas.gov.au/2527
You are invited to comment on the following issues:
* are there any significant impediments to your organisation delivering this course if it wished to do so?
* if your organisation were to deliver this course, are there any special transition arrangements needed for students in existing courses?
* is there any significant item of learning that should be removed from/added to the course?
* are there any reasons the Authority should consider sufficient grounds for refusing to accredit this course?
Please note that this invitation for comment is part of the accreditation process and comments need to address one or more of the issues noted above. This is not part of the course development process as that stage is now complete.
Comments can be emailed to me by 29 June 2012.
