The Crux of the Matter 2011: Language, Literacy and Numeracy and Vocational Educational and Training (PDF, 4.4MB)
The Crux of the Matter was updated in 2011 to take into account changes to the VET system: the development of the Australian Core Skills Framework (replacing the National Reporting System) and the review of the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF).
The aim of this resource is to improve language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) practices within vocational education and training (VET) delivery and assessment, and to comply with the AQTF through a planned approach to LLN.
It provides models of good practice, suggestions and practical assistance and a number fact files that include practical information and tools.
