Does IFAP send through my application for the High Risk Work Licence?

LLN Assessments

What is LLN?

LLN is an acronym for Language, Literacy and Numeracy and are the core skills required to complete a nationally recognised training course.

Why do I need to complete an LLN Assessment?

All participants seeking to enrol on a nationally recognised training course are required to be assessed to determine any support needs.

How does the LLN Assessment assist me?

IFAP are committed to ensuring that we provide you with the best chance of success in the course you have selected. This process assists IFAP to:
•    Determine your suitability to the course that you have selected
•    Identify and assist with any additional support or preparatory skills you may require
•    Provide you with any coaching and mentoring you may require

What happens if I fail?

The LLN Assessment is not a test and therefore there is no pass or fail.
