Pre-training Review

To assist prospective students to determine whether a course is suitable and appropriate for their individual needs, SGAE will assess all students’ language, literacy and numeracy and digital literacy by asking them to undertake a self-assessment review prior to enrolment.

The review provides essential information about you and your background, which then allows SGAE to understand your current capabilities prior to training and make recommendations on course suitability, and identify additional support where required.
