Am I eligible for a funded place?
You may be eligible for funding support from the State or Commonwealth Government under a range of training support and incentive programs.
The Victorian Government Skills First funding is making vocational education and training more accessible to students who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold.
The Skills First funding is an entitlement to a Victorian government subsidised place in recognised training that can be accessed at any time and it will continue to be available for training at successively higher levels.
However, please note, undertaking this course may affect your eligibility for funded training with the Victorian Government in the future, as:
- You can’t start* more than 2 subsidised courses in a year.
- You can’t do more than 2 subsidised courses at the same time.
- You can’t start* more than 2 subsidised courses at the same qualification level in your life.
Diversitat Training will check your eligibility before offering you a funded place. Information on how to prepare for your eligibility assessment is here: https://www.skills.vic.gov.au/victorianskillsgateway/Understand/Pages/eligibilityassessment.aspx
If you are eligible for funding, the Victorian Government Skills First can contribute to the cost of your training.

All students wishing to enrol in this qualification are required to undergo a pre-training review interview with a Trainer/Assessor to determine that the student understands the qualification requirements, that the qualification suits the student’s needs and aspirations, and the work opportunities and/or pathways attainable after successful completion of the qualification.
The placement assessment to determine the participant’s entry ACSF level will be undertaken during the Pre-Training Review Interview, using the Diversitat CALD Pre-Training Assessment Kit. Participants are assessed on the core skills of Reading, Writing and Oral Communication.
There are no specific technology requirements for this program. Students are recommended to have access to a computer and a broadband internet connection at home.
The CHC National Training Package indicates that there are no qualification or other entry requirements for this qualification.
Diversitat recommended entry requirements:
Entry into the Certificate III in Spoken and Written English will be determined according to the following criteria:
- a participant’s current English language skills, assessed against the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). The recommended entry point against the ACSF is Level 2.

We will discuss with you and record your responses;
- your aspirations and interests and consider how this will lead you to the job you want or to further study
- the skills, experiences and education you already have
- how your language, literacy and numeracy skills will best suit the course

RPL and Credit Transfer
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Recognition of prior English learning is incorporated into the initial placement assessment. If the assessment results show previous learning to a level higher than ACSF Level 3 the learner will be considered to have achieved functional English. The learner will be referred to another provider for Certificate IV in Spoken and Written English or other studies without the requirement to first complete 10729NAT.
Fees for RPL are determined based on units and nominal hours.
If a student has studied before, they may be eligible for Credit Transfer (CT) of successfully completed units that are also in this qualification or equivalent units from 10364NAT.
Potential for the CT of all or some of the units in this qualification is assessed during enrolment and the pre-training review, and is granted when the student provides the academic transcript or Statement of Attainment for the unit/s of competency they are seeking to transfer.
The successful application of CT will decrease the length of this qualification.
Induction before you start the course
