The CSWE courses provide a framework for learners to develop English language and literacy skills and optional numeracy skills to undertake further education and training, seek and maintain employment and participate in the general community.

The Course in Preliminary Spoken and Written English and the Certificates I–IV in Spoken and Written English (CSWE) are accredited by ASQA until 30 September 2018. RTOs must hold a current CSWE licence to deliver the six courses. From 1 October 2018 no enrolments can be taken in the current six CSWE courses:
