Financial Literacy Education Skill Set

Financial Literacy Education Skill Set

Training and Assessment
The three (3) Financial Literacy units (FLE) are suited for workers who hold a Community Services qualification at Certificate III level or higher or have significant sector experience. This skill set is aimed at workers who are working with clients facing issues with their day to day finances and those who are at risk from increasing debt.

These units provide foundation skills in financial literacy education, and can also provide experienced staff, with the opportunity to further develop their skills and gain a formal Statement of Attainment in the FLE Skill Set.
