Since 2007, Greystanes has been funded on four occasions by the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program (part of the Commonwealth Government’s Department of Industry) to develop language, literacy and numeracy training packages (LLN) for the disability services sector.
Our WELL training packages are flexible, tailored for the needs of the workplace and provide vocational education by underpinning LLN skills within units of competency from industry-specific training packages. More information about each of our WELL training packages is below and packages can be ordered from here. Any charges for packages are based on cost-recovery, postage and packaging.
