The ACSF details performance in the five Core Skills of Learning, Reading, Writing, Oral Communication and Numeracy. The ACSF is the validated tool that provides a consistent national approach to the identification and development of the core skills in diverse personal, community, work and education and training contexts. It offers:

  • Shared concepts and language for identifying, describing and discussing core skills
  • A systematic approach to benchmarking, monitoring and reporting on core skills performance.
