English and Maths

Do you need help with reading, writing and maths? BCAL provides support in a welcoming environment.

Reading, writing and maths skills can help you to build your confidence; get more involved in your community; access services; get or keep a job (paid or voluntary); enrol in further training or complete a qualification.

Improving these skills can also help you with daily tasks such as completing forms; reading labels on medication; getting a driver’s licence or reading with your children.

Learn Local tutors can work with you on a one-to-one basis or in a small group.

Both pre-accredited and accredited training programs and courses are available in this learning area.

"Completing the Certificate II in Salon assistant course assisted me to be more advanced when I actually started my Hairdressing apprenticeship in "Enter Hair" Wonthaggi. This set me up to  doing what I love doing, "more colour and cutting practice". I'm really happy that completing the course put me into the trade I so wanted.
