Creating a Comprehensive Workplace TESOL & Literacy Service.
The evolution of the Workplace Education Service that operates in South Australia is chronicled. Begun as a single program designed to integrate workplace literacy, English as a Second Language, and literacy education for both native and non-native English-speakers in an automobile plant, the project grew into a network of programs and services in ten colleges across the region. Establishment of the initial program and foundations for expansion are the focus of this report. These aspects of the program's development are highlighted: rationale and potential for support; writing a workplace education policy; program consultation and management; sources of funding; administrative and logistical considerations in formation of the first unit; creating the administrative structure; unit development and operation; teacher roles and responsibilities; program philosophy and values; and benefits of the comprehensive, as contrasted with fragmented, approach to literacy and workplace education.
