The Certificates in General Education for Adults (CGEA) were initially developed to address the education and training needs of adults who had left secondary school early and needed to improve their literacy, basic maths and general education skills. The current curriculum continues to provide skill development in reading, writing and numeracy, meet personal needs and facilitate community participation, or workplace and further education and training options.
Certificate I outcomes focus on the development of literacy skills to create and interpret simple, personally relevant texts and mathematical knowledge to apply numeracy skills in everyday familiar situations. Skills and knowledge are applied to develop and document a learning plan, prepare a portfolio to evidence learning and engage in a project
