Foundational Learning Competence (FLC)
Ensuring that learners have the underlying communication and numeracy (FLC) skills to enable them to progress successfully on occupational learning programmes.
The introduction of the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) highlighted the need for a qualification that prepares adult learners for occupational training and skills development.
Foundational Learning (FLC) refers to competence in two subject areas: Communication in English and Mathematical Literacy (numeracy). Together these two form a part qualification, which was submitted to SAQA for registration in March 2012.
Access (FLC) has been designed for an occupational training context, which uses English as the language of learning and training. It is seen as a platform for progress in both occupational training as well as in applied work performance.
Media Works offers the Foundational Learning (FLC) in Computer-Assisted and Face-to-Face training methodologies, as well as a combination of the two.
