Prior to entry into the second year of full time study, students in this course will have to sit the LANTITE test in order to demonstrate that their literacy and numeracy skills are within that expected of the top 30% of the population in Australia. The LANTITE test is a national government requirement for initial teacher education programs. Students should note that they will be subject to a Working With Children Check before practice placements, in accordance with Department of Education and Training policy. Satisfactory achievement of the benchmark for literacy and numeracy is a requirement to graduate from the program.
