Addressing language, literacy and numeracy in the resources and infrastructure industry
This resource is a guide for teachers, trainers and assessors who deliver training from the RII09 Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package. It focuses on how to develop the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills required for work in the five sectors within the resources and infrastructure industry: coal mining, metalliferous mining, drilling, quarrying and civil construction.
The resource provides practical advice and tools to assist trainers to develop core LLN skills that are integral to technical skill development in the resources and infrastructure industry. The guide has three main parts.
