Workplace Literacy And Numeracy (WPLN) Course

Workplace Literacy And Numeracy (WPLN) Course

About the Course

For those who do not possess “N” or “O” Levels qualification and are working/will work at a place that requires writing and numeracy skills, fret not! Our Workplace Literacy and Numeracy courses will help you to enhance and develop your English reading, listening, speaking and writing or Mathematics skills.

Before applying for our WPLN training, you will have to go through an assessment (WPLN Pre-Test) to be placed into the right training level. The WPLN assessments are computer-based. Assistance will be given to participants with little or no computer skills to help them get used to the use of the mouse and have a go at the practice assessments.

Once completed, you may sign up for the WPLN course in accordance to the assessment level obtained.
