Skills First enrolment

All prospective students (check eligibility here) are interviewed by an NMLL teacher to discuss their learning needs and assess their level for placement in a suitable class or referral to other training providers. Students are assisted in the enrolment process and must agree to the terms and conditions of enrolment before commencing at NMLL. Terms and conditions include:


At NMLL, students are assessed in accordance with the assessment requirements detailed in the Victorian EAL Framework.

A range of methods are used to assess students, including interviews, participation in group discussions and activities, reading and writing and role play. Certificates and Statements of Attainment are issued in accordance with units of competency attained.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

NMLL no longer offers RPL assessments but can advise of organisations that do offer the service.

Credit Transfer (CT) and Recognition of AQF qualifications

Accredited units, modules and courses undertaken at another Registered Training Organisation (RTO) can be recognised by NMLL if an original Statement of Attainment from the other RTO or an authorised copy is provided. This service is restricted to the courses and units NMLL is approved to deliver as indicated on NMLL’s current Scope of Registration.
