Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skill 

Description 

Reading

  • Identifies and interprets a range of online and hard copy text containing complex ICT and programming specific terminology
  • Interprets and comprehends a large range of syntax, diagrams, icons, symbols, text, numbers and letters required to develop a GUI

Writing

  • Uses spelling and grammar, plain English and specific terminology to produce documents to organisational guidelines as required by the job role
