LANTITE Campaign

To allow all students Nationally to graduate without the LANTITE.

It will provide students with the choice to participate in the LANTITE for teacher registration or use their degree for other avenues of study or employment.
Alternatively, students who began their degree prior to July 2016 to be exempt from the LANTITE. No student was informed of the LANTITE prior to entering leaving them with a HECS debt of $40,000.00 or more, with no degree and the inability to pay the debt they incurred for a degree they have not received.

Why is this important?

Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Education Students [LANTITE] and the administration of LANTITE.

We can understand your frustration given Education and the COVID-19 pandemic; We believe you can understand and appreciate our frustration in regard to the LANTITE and our inability to graduate. As a result, we implore you for your support in removing the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Education Students (LANTITE) administered by ACER as a graduate requirement.

These students have successfully completed the units in their degrees, as well as professional practise in the form of placements. Throughout degrees and placements, the importance of literacy and numeracy is highlighted.

We implore you to support the removal of LANTITE as a graduation requirement. In doing so, you will be contributing and assisting Australia’s economic return through this pandemic.

How it will be delivered


Reasons for signing

  • Limits students ability
  • Instead of charging $100 for students to sit a test, a program that students can enrol in that will allow students to develop their skills would be more appropriate. If there are gaps in knowledge, provide a PROGRAM/ MODULES/ COURSE ONLINE that allows students to develop skills. Everyone learns and demonstrates knowledge and understanding differently, yet a standardised test was implemented? Let students graduate while they work toward completing lantite
  • In a response from parliament, in was revealed "universities do have the option to use the test as a selection tool" however none have opted to do so!!!!!. It is not right what they are doing. You can find the response through this website: https://www.aph.gov.au/petition_list?id=EN1596
