Digital Job Ready – Business – Sydney Course

It may have been a while since you were in the work force, or it may be a whole new world for you, or you may want to launch yourself into some study. We understand that you may be just a little unsure of what is expected of you at work or study and that may be deterring you from taking the big first step.

This course is designed specifically for people who are at the entry level with computers and digital technology. We have thought about the struggles you may have and have developed a practical, fun and engaging course that will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to feel confident enough to enter the world of work or study again.

The traditional office and learning environments are changing. Cloud-computing is taking over. More and more customers are engaging online rather than in-store.

Instant communication happens with email and chats. This course will ensure you have the basic knowledge to walk into a workplace or college and be familiar with a range of software applications that assist you to communicate effectively, work to deadlines, and to engage with colleagues, clients or fellow students.

This course is not only for those people who want to work in an office. Digital skills are required everywhere!

Be prepared to become job ready – confident, happy and ready-to-go to work or study in any field you choose.
Core and elective units from the BSB20115 Certificate II in Business have been added to FSK20113 Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways to enable a pathway to other business services qualifications at the same level.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.

This is underpinned by the AQF definition of credit as follows:

  • Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications.
  • Credit reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification and may be through credit transfer, articulation, recognition of prior learning or advanced standing.
