Semester 1
This course is completely internally assessed. Much of the work done in this course is directly connected with the work students are doing in the Trades courses. In the first part of the year students will have the opportunity to develop their writing and speaking skills particularly aimed at the workplace .

Semester 2
In the second part of the year the work students will do in this course continues to be around developing those communication skills which are so vital for the workplace particularly in communicating and working with others.
