The tool is designed to assess your Language, Literacy and Numeracy skills – and give you an idea of the right level of study for you, such as a Certificate III, Certificate IV, or Diploma and above.
You can use this tool to better plan your studies and access all the different student and learner support on offer from Open Colleges.

With ACJ and Open Colleges there are many flexible payment options. Nearly all of our courses give you the option to pay in weekly or monthly installments, meaning that you don’t have to come up with a large portion of payment upfront. However, if you do choose to pay upfront, significant savings can be a benefit.
Open Colleges is trying to put education and development into the hands of every Australian, that’s why we pride ourselves on supporting you in every way that we can. Investing in your future is a smart choice with Open Colleges.
We understand that you demand the highest quality in your education and learning, that’s why many of our qualifications are nationally recognized under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

This means that these courses are recognised by employers across Australia.
As well as this, in a first of its kind partnership, Open Colleges has partnered with North Coast TAFE to offer you a selection of the most innovative TAFE courses to enhance your future career prospects.
