FSK20119 Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways

The capacity to attain and apply new knowledge, and use new technologies will be the focus of the future.

As both knowledge and technologies rapidly transform, and tasks become at risk of automation, human skills will constantly shift. In this environment, it is crucial to have systems that support and enable people to retrain, rather than learn how to do one job very well.

Education and learning is moving away from traditional settings and increasingly towards informal settings. This is being done through digital and offline platforms designed to match people with resources. These platforms are based on collaborative spaces, peer-to-peer learning, and connected virtual delivery.

In a world where vocational and technical skills will constantly need to adapt to new technologies and job requirements, people need to be taught skills that enhance their ability to adapt to new situations and acquire new skills. At the same time, as the world of work becomes more flexible, employees are expected to take more responsibility for their skills development.

Digital skills IT skills will become increasingly important and will have an increasingly large impact on the way professions operate and on employment prospects. The Foundation for Young Australians has identified that in the near future approximately 90% of jobs in Australia will require computer skills.

Strong foundational skills, such as literacy and numeracy skills, including digital and financial literacy, are extremely important. Strong foundation skills are essential to develop or train within any new, more specialised skill areas.

In a world where vocational and technical skills will constantly need to adapt to new technologies and job requirements, people need to be taught skills that enhance their ability to adapt to new situations and acquire new skills. At the same time, as the world of work becomes more flexible, employees are expected to take more responsibility for their skills development.

Digital skills IT skills will become increasingly important and will have an increasingly large impact on the way professions operate and on employment prospects. The Foundation for Young Australians has identified that in the near future approximately 90% of jobs in Australia will require computer skills. The specific skills required will have an increasingly short shelf life. This is why the human skills of learning and collaborating are so crucial.

No refund or cancellation is available for online courses.

Discretion may be exercised by the Chief Executive Officer in all situations, if the student can demonstrate that extenuating or significant personal circumstance led to their withdrawal. In these cases, the student should be offered a full credit toward the tuition fee in another scheduled program in-lue of a refund. Chief Executive Officer may also authorise a refund of tuition fees if the circumstances require it.

Where refunds are approved, the refund payment must be paid to the student within 14 days from the time the student gave written notice to cancel their enrolment. Tuition refunds are to be paid via electronic funds transfer using the authorised bank account nominated by the student on the Refund Request Form.

If for any reason MySkills is unable to fulfil its service agreement with a student, MySkills must issue a full refund for any services not provided. The basis for determining “services not provided” is to be based on the units of competency completed by the student and which can be issued in a statement of attainment at the time the service is terminated.

Credit transfer is the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training. Under the Australian VET Framework, qualifications and statements of attainment issued by any RTO are to be accepted and recognised by all other RTOs. Credit transfer allows a student to be awarded a unit of competency based on successful completion of the unit which has been previously awarded.

For more information ask about see our Credit Transfer Policy. To apply for Credit Transfer, fill out the Credit Transfer Application form available on our website and attach certified copies of the evidence you have (e.g. Statement of Attainment or Certificate) to show you have completed the unit.

MySkills is committed to the concept of lifelong learning, i.e. the ability of a person to be able to continually build on their own knowledge through formal and workplace learning throughout their lifetime. MySkills is pleased to be able to offer a service whereby we can have professional staff determine existing formally (and sometimes informally) learned knowledge in a particular area.

This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Once your existing learning has been determined you are on your way to increasing your knowledge without having to re-learn what you already know.

We understand that you may already have many skills and areas of expertise that you have obtained in different ways and these are recognised through our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.

Call 02 8814 8640 to book an RPL Information Session.

MySkills courses are may conducted over the internet.  As such, you will need access to a suitable computer or tablet device with a connection to the internet.  You need to have access to a webcam and/or video recording device such as a mobile phone. Most home computers are suitable.
