Learn skills to prepare you for the workforce

If you’d like to work in the police force, defence force, protective services or nursing sectors, this course is for you. You’ll learn how to prepare for selection examinations by refining your literacy, writing, reasoning, problem solving and mathematical skills.

Help from teaching staff on campus is available at the Individual Learning Centre.
