    Entrance Requirements

    Please note entry into this course is competitive. All applicants are required to attend a mandatory interview with the Course Coordinator and complete a short Literacy assessment.  The interview and assessment will take approximately 1 hour. The interview is an opportunity to discuss what you can expect from the course and what will be expected of you should you be offered a position.
