The LLN Robot boasts features such as:

Non-biased online assessment: The online assessment is designed using the ACSF/LLN community domain. It uses real -world, everyday examples and situations avoiding any bias against learners who are not familiar with workplace of formal training environments.

Multi-level testing: When you invite learners to take the online test you can choose whether they are assessed up to ACSF/LLN level 3 or level 4.

Invite individuals or groups of learners to take the test: Pre-fill individual learner details and send them a link to the test, all from the LLN Robot system. Or bulk upload a group of learners using a customised spreadsheet generated by the system.

Learner results database: View the LLN profile of any learner that has completed the online test, or send a reminder to those who haven’t done it yet.

Learner answer report: Generate a report that shows the answers that a learner entered vs the correct answer, and the time it took to complete the assessment.

Get the ACSF/LLN profile of any current national unit of competency: LLN Robot will analyse any current unit of competency up to diploma level and instantly provide you with the ACSF/LLN profile.

Get profiles for the courses that you actually deliver: LLN Robot dynamically updates the ACSF/LLN profile of a course as you add more units to it. Don’t settle for a profile that is limited to the core units – get the full picture by adding electives.

Customisable forms: Get the specific information that you want from your learners. Customise the learner details form to capture the data you need.

Easy user account management: Manage your own users and allocate different access levels based on roles within the training organisation.

System analytics: View graphs and generate reports of system usage, test completion rates, average scores, and a range of other interesting data.

Help at your fingertips: LLN Robot contains complete user documentation giving you step-by-step instructions for completing any process within the system.

Overview of the features in the LLN Robot System and the function each feature performs.

Home Screen

The home screen gives you access to all features of the LLN Robot System.

You can choose from the menu options on the left side of the screen.

HomeYou can select any of the four task wizards in the centre and they will guide you through each process step by step.

You can access the help menu on the right.

Help Section

HelpThe help section of the new LLN Robot System is extensive and can be found by clicking the help tab found on the right side of the screen.

Help topics cover every function within the system and in some cases gives you the option to have a help pdf for the topic you select or a video demonstrating the process.

The documented help gives you more thorough, step by step instructions that include screen shots.

The video help shows someone completing the process onscreen.

Invite Learners

inviteThe invite learners section gives you two options.

Firstly, you can invite a single learner to complete the online LLN test. By filling out the learner’s details you are able to email an invitation right from the LLN Robot System.

Secondly, you can invite large groups of learners via a bulk upload.

To complete a bulk upload you can download a pre-formatted spreadsheet from the system and fill out the details for multiple learners. Once you re-upload the completed spreadsheet the system will let you review the list on screen and in one click you can invite all of those learners.

The system will send each learner an individual email with a link to the test with their details prefilled.

View Learners Details

You can view your learners’ results in the system at any time.

learnerYou can resend invitations to learners who haven’t completed the test yet.

You can edit learner contact details and view learner test answers.

You can also modify learner results if you have manually assessed them and have a different outcome to the system.

You can view all learner results or filter it to see only the ones you have invited.

Course Profiles

You can create, save and manage course profiles from within the system.

Course_profileA course profile is either single or multiple units that make up the training course or qualification you will be delivering to your learners.

Simply name the profile, select the training level (up to diploma level), and type in each of the unit codes and the system contacts training.gov.au and analyses each unit instantly.

Once all your units are in you can save the profile so the system can compare the outcomes with your learner test results.

You can also view or edit course profiles as required.

Skills Gap

When your learners have completed their testing and you have developed your course profile the system can then analyse your learners skills gap if required.

skills_gapIt’s a simple process of selecting the learners which will be attending training, selecting the course profile of the training being conducted and the system will do the rest.

You will automatically receive a skills gap report showing which learners have lower ACSF/LLN levels in which areas of the training they are enrolled in.

The report also shows the spread of skills gaps across the whole class.

For each group the system will then email you with a list of learners requiring a training supplement and a link to download each supplement.

The training supplement contains lessons and activities that the learner can work through by themselves or with a trainer. The supplement is designed to help the learner bridge the gap between their current skill level and where they need to be for the training they are enrolled in.

Once you have downloaded the customised supplements you can arrange to email them to the student or print them a copy.

LLN Resources

The system also comes with some LLN resources for your use.

From this menu you can access:

  • User Guide.
  • LLN Test Mapping.
  • Supplement Mapping.
  • Extra Numeracy Revision Sheets.
  • ASQA Implementation Information.
  • Supplement Model Answers.


Administration Settings

The system comes with administration settings and system analytics.

These are limited to use by administration level users.

More information on these is contained in the user guide and the help section of the system.

3 Things you can do to Help your RTO Right Now

Help_your_RTO_right_nowWhat can you do to improve your RTO in the next 5 minutes? Check out these quick and easy actionable steps to get the most out of your next five minutes.

1. Get amongst it

Simply take five minutes to read this blog. Then take another five and implement one of the many suggestions below. You will be 10 minutes older and your RTO will be better off than if you had spent it looking at cat memes. This industry is CONSTANTLY changing. With what feels like a new discussion paper or draft standard dropped on us each week or month it is important that you take the time to stay up to date. This can be as simple as perusing a quarterly magazine, looking up the latest from your regulator or reading a VET based blog post (woohoo you’re doing it!). Staying up to date doesn’t mean spending hours curating the largest collection of VET articles to read during every spare moment you have, instead focus on reading important and relevant articles and papers that will impact your RTO. Take action:

  • Sign up to receive newsletters from your industry – these could be based in VET or the industry you train in.
  • Join a LinkedIn group and read their discussions. This is a great resource not only for maintaining your industry knowledge but also for networking with likeminded professionals.
  • Start a discussion in a LinkedIn group. Do you have a burning question? A new perspective? Want to share an article?

2. Shine your digital footprint

I’m a big believer in checking out a business online before giving them my money. If a friend suggests going to a new restaurant you know that I am on their Facebook page scrolling through their updates before the reservation is set. I wanted to know if I am just a super stalker or if this is common practice –it turns out that up to 81% of consumers will conduct research online before a big purchase. One of the biggest factors of my research is looking through the businesses social media accounts (if they have them) and seeing how they respond to customers. This is a great indication of what to expect both during the transaction and post-purchase. This means I can get a fairly good idea of how the company rates – if the restaurant has a bunch of negative reviews and next to no online customer service you bet that I won’t be going there tonight. The same rings true when a customer is choosing which RTO to complete their training with – make sure your RTO’s online image compels the learner to sign up. Take action

  • Find all your social media accounts and look at them like you are a potential customer. Is your branding consistent? Are there reviews or testimonials from past clients? Are they positive? What is your message? Does it compel you to reach out?
  • Read through the “About Us” and “FAQ” sections on your website. Do they read well? Do they answer common questions? Would a potential learner be compelled to reach out? Would a potential learner (or their employer) feel comfortable trusting and working with you?
  • Google your company to see what results turn up. Now turn on incognito to see if the results change based on your browsing history (find out how here: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001378.htm). This is what your customer will see when they search for you.

3. Know what they know

“Most importantly, if you’re going to ask (for feedback), be ready to change.”

– David Maister

Your greatest asset is your customer. They will either be complimenting or complaining to their friends about your services – wouldn’t you prefer to know which it is. And if the training was part of their job, what are they saying to their boss or supervisor? One of the greatest ways to ensure that your products and offerings are resonating with your learners is to simply ask them. Seeking and implementing feedback should be an integral part of your RTO’s processes – not just to fulfill a requirement but as a tool put towards a genuine interest in improving your learner’s experience. A set of simple surveys sent out to your learners at various stages during their time with you can be extremely useful. Online tools like surveymonkey (find more here: http://whinot.com/blog/2012/4-online-survey-tools-which-one-is-best-for-you/) almost make it too easy to seek feedback. This blog here even outlines 10 rules for creating valuable customer surveys: http://www.helpscout.net/blog/customer-survey/. Take action:

  • Create a short survey designed to send to learners when they have finished their studies with you.
  • If you already gather feedback: review the way that you currently collect feedback. Is there a better way? What sort of completion rates are you getting? How can you improve this?

You made it all the way to the end? Your first five minute block was super productive – here is a cat meme anyway (you deserve it): I was supposed to pick up carl Let us know what other short, sharp actions you can take to help your RTO in the comments section below.

Major Issues that RTOs Face when Dealing with Language, Literacy & Numeracy


In recent years we’ve worked with a number of RTOs looking at ways to manage training, assessment and compliance across the board. Our experience shows that there are a lot of different ideas out there and that each RTO finds a way that fits best for them. One area we’ve looked at in particular over the last few years is language, literacy and numeracy (LLN).


With focus coming from different areas (No More Excuses report, TAELLN unit and the development of the ACSF) LLN assessment is a major part of most enrolment processes. Our experiences have shed light on a few common issues with managing LLN in RTOs:

Throughout this article when we talk about ‘core skills’ or the ACSF we are also talking about language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) as these form part of the core skills framework.

  1. Consistently assessing the LLN levels of learners without spending hours with each person, or employing a full time LLN expert.

One learner may require more help than others in some areas. It is important that you are able to identify the needs of each learner to identify those ‘at risk’ of dropping out or failing due to language, literacy or numeracy issues.

  1. Working out the LLN levels for a unit or qualification.

A unit or qualification must be analysed to work out the core skills that it contains. This job is generally done by an LLN practitioner, course coordinator or trainer. However there is a chance that different people may interpret the units differently. It Is also very time consuming and may not necessarily fit into existing staff workloads.

  1. Managing learners with different LLN levels in the same class.

Each learner has strengths and weaknesses. It is important that you are able to identify these to see if there are any common trends for all course participants, or identify individual learners who may have more specific needs to successfully complete the course.

In response to each of these problems, Safe Work Resources has developed a holistic approach to easily managing LLN.


Assessment of the ACSF core skills (and broader foundation skills) can be done in a number of ways:

  • There are practitioners who specialise in identifying core skills and providing guidance to RTOs on how they should work with learners to develop these skills.
  • A number of Industry Skills Councils have produced ‘how to’ guides explaining the techniques that can be used to identify core skills in units and this needs to be combined with an understanding of the ACSF to decode the levels identified.
  • One final option is to use software to analyse units and qualifications to give you the results quickly and easily.

The LLN Robot system has been developed to work out the ACSF levels of units and qualifications, as well as making training recommendations by comparing a learner’s levels with the levels of the qualification they want to do.

You can find out more about LLN Robot here.


Regardless of how you have assessed learners in the past, there is a need to ensure that your evaluations produce results that can be compared to the ACSF core skill levels. As more training packages are streamlined there will be more emphasis on these ACSF levels.

The Online LLN Indicator Tool available here is a good starting point for LLN/ACSF assessment.

In brief, the test has a range of questions that addresses Learning, Writing, Reading, Oral Communication (Listening) and Numeracy.

You can find out more about how it works and other developments in this article.


As part of the enrolment process it is important to identify any difficulties that a learner is likely to face where their current LLN/ACSF skills are under-developed.

Using LLN Robot you can compare a learner’s current LLN/ACSF levels with the levels associated with a unit or qualification. The system will produce a series of recommendations wherever a gap is identified and should be used to inform decisions made around training strategies including additional support services and alternative vocational pathways to assist the learner in achieving their training outcomes.

Future Improvements:

Based on feedback from over 100 training organisations and educational institutes there are a range of improvements under development for both the LLN Indicator Tool and LLN Robot. A brief outline of these can be found below:

LLN Indicator Tool LLN Robot
Corporate branded option with:

  • Assessment up to level 4 ACSF.
  • Secure login.
  • Database of results that can be exported and uploaded directly into the LLN Robot system.
  • Increased database of unit profiles.
  • Improved qualification profile interface.
  • Creation of upskilling training resources when comparing learner results to qualification profiles (more details below).

Upskilling Training Resources

Currently in development are a range of training resources that can be used in conjunction with your current training program to assist in upskilling learner core skills. These resources are generated based on the comparison between a learner’s current skills and the profile of the qualification they are enrolling in.

The resources will include information and activities that the learner can complete in or out of the training environment to support the development of their core skills throughout the duration of training. These resources may be used as pre-course learning modules or introductions to topics and industries to help learners ease their way into a more formal learning environment by preparing them for the training that will follow.

Each set of resources is compiled specifically for the needs of a learner and will be available in a range of contexts to suit learners who are enrolling in different subjects including:

  • Community health.
  • Industrial sectors.
  • Business and administrative duties.


Online LLN Indicator Tool


After a year in development Safe Work Resources launched an online LLN/ACSF assessment tool to provide an indication of a person’s current skill levels. This indicator tool has been available online since the start of the year and has been used to assess thousands of learners in that time.

blog10.10.14_2 (3)Before getting into the details of the assessment it is important to note that the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) does not match the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF).

  • The Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) has 10 levels from certificate 1 to Doctoral Degree.
  • The Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) has 5 core skills, each with 5 levels (1-5) as well as a pre-level 1.

Certificate 3 does not equal ACSF core skill level 3.

blog10.10.14_2 (2)

Core skill levels are not based on qualification levels – two different qualifications as the same certificate level can have very different core skill levels associated with them For example some certificate 4 qualifications reflect a higher understanding of mathematical processes (level 4 numeracy) while other certificate 4 qualifications have much lower focus on numeracy (level 2 numeracy).

Core skills are based on the requirements of a job that a qualification relates to or prepares you for. Core skills are not a pre-requisite for training, but are an outcome to be gained or bolstered through training.

Throughout this article when we talk about ‘core skills’ or the ACSF we are also talking about language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) as these form part of the core skills framework.

How The LLN Indicator Tool Works:

The Online LLN Indicator Tool is an evaluation test that has been developed in line with the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). The purpose of the tool is to provide an indication of the level of a learner across the 5 core skills as a starting point for training. As streamlined training packages are released and updated over the next few years it will be important to ensure that all learners are at the appropriate level across the 5 core skills by the end of training. This will help to make sure they have the skills to meet the requirements of the job once in the workplace.

The test has a range of questions that addresses Learning, Writing, Reading, Oral Communication (Listening) and Numeracy. It is important to note that the core skill of Oral Communication (Speaking) is not addressed within this test and needs to be assessed using other means or methods.

The result of each test is displayed in a ‘spikey profile’. These results address ACSF levels 0 – 3. A result of 3 indicates the learner is at level 3 (or higher) for a core skill.


The results can be emailed directly from the web browser window and a copy of the result should be sent to the trainer. Once the browser window is closed the information is lost. No LLN results are kept after the completion of the test.

At this time ACSF levels 4 and 5 are not tested within the online environment due to the complexities of making judgements for these levels. However this is one area where further development is underway. More details can be found later in this article.

Interpreting the Results:

Results should only be considered as an indication and should not be used in isolation as a means of determining the ACSF levels of an individual. Our recommendation is that the test is conducted within a training organisation at the point of enrolment. This will allow all parties to prepare for any additional training that may need to occur.

There is always a margin of error that may occur based on the computer literacy of the learner, hardware malfunction or inadequacy or general user error. For this reason it may be useful to have a learner repeat the test to ensure accuracy of results.

Please refer to the ACSF website for information on how to interpret the results of the spikey profile and what each level indicates.

Testing Based on Qualification Enrolment:

One question that has come up on a number of occasions when discussing LLN/ACSF assessment with RTOs was whether or not a specific test is used based on the qualification level or subject. This may seem like a logical link to make however, the qualification level and topic should not necessarily influence the format or method of LLN/ACSF assessment. Both LLN and core skills are basic ‘Foundation’ skills that apply to all areas of a person’s life. For this reason the ACSF has provided examples of how core skills can be used or demonstrated in personal, workplace and training environment/s.

blog10.10.14_2 (6)

In an effort not to create a bias towards or away from people with experience in the workforce or in formal training environments the tool we have developed is placed firmly in the ‘Personal and Community Domain’. This keeps assessment of core skills in familiar, unbiased territory appropriate for all audiences regardless of industry or workplace experience.

But what about more difficult qualifications? Shouldn’t they have a more difficult test? The simple answer is no and let me explain why. The fact that a learner is enrolling in a particular qualification has no bearing on their current LLN/core skill levels and no expectation can be fairly applied. These skills are not a pre-requisite for entry to training and any deficit or gap should be managed using a range of options.

By using a single test that builds in complexity as the learner answers correctly you can determine the upper limits of that learner’s skills. The aim of the assessment is to find each person’s highest level for each core skill. This assessment should not be influenced by the complexity of the qualification, but rather the two profiles (learner and qualification) should be compared to inform future decisions about training – you don’t need a more difficult test to do this.

blog10.10.14_2 (4)

Limitations with Online Testing:

When developing an online assessment there are limitations on the level of complexity that can be used at higher ACSF levels. To give an example, level 5 writing consists of a range of sub-criteria that include ranging abilities from using logical organisational structures in writing to using specialised vocabulary and drafting and revision processes. In a testing environment, the assessment would consist of a number of smaller tasks building on each other and requiring highly accurate and successful completion of each step. Given the complexity of an approach like this there is more opportunity for an inaccurate result based on user, system or connectivity error.

Time constraints of LLN/core skill assessment is also a real issue and requiring a learner to complete hours of work just to determine higher ACSF levels is more often than not an unfeasible impost on both learner and RTO.

Given that the highest level ACSF skills are predominantly reserved for Diploma to Advanced Diploma and beyond it is not necessary to assess beyond level 4 ACSF as any person with at least level 4 will have the opportunity to develop the level 5 skills required throughout the training process. It is not a requirement that a person is already at level 5 before they begin training, but that they are skilled to level 5 by the time they enter the workforce with the completed qualification.

We have recognised that there is a need to gather indications of learner skill levels beyond level 3 ACSF and we are developing further assessment options to indicate up to level 4. But for the reasons discussed above we will not be developing assessments for level 5 in an online environment at this time.

Any LLN/ACSF assessment that you use within your own organisation needs to suit your purpose and your client base. A combination of face to face, practical demonstration (talking, listening, filling in forms etc.), RPL, workplace/3rd party evidence and an initial assessment will all contribute to building a picture of each person’s abilities and will help to inform both trainer and learner about the best training pathway to unlock future work opportunities.


Future Developments:

Based on feedback received there is a definite need for consistent assessment of the ACSF at higher levels. Many Certificate IV qualifications contain units with level 4 ACSF core skills required to perform the job (after training has concluded). Based on this we have been working on further assessment to indicate results up to level 4 in an online environment. These additional assessments will be made available in the ‘Corporate’ subscription version of the indicator tool. Additional features include capturing all learner results in a database accessed via secure login and filtering and exporting results for use in other systems, including LLN Robot (for more information please click here).
