More than Money Can Say. The Impact of ESL and Literacy Training in the Australian Workplace. Volume II. Statistical Overview.
Australian Dept. of Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs, Canberra.
This volume contains all statistical data from a research project that determined the impact of workplace language and literacy inclusive training (LLIT) on key aspects of the workplace in regard to the whole process of workplace change. The document presents the principal data on which the findings and recommendations are based. A general introduction details the number of respondents (from a sample of 520) to each of the 5 instruments used and the number of workplaces represented and presents the guidelines upon which the statistics presented were based. The volume is then divided into the five aspects of the workplace in which language and literacy inclusive training (LLIT) had the most impact: direct cost savings, access to and acceptability of further training, participation in teams and meetings, promotion and job flexibility, and the value of training. The section corresponding to each of these aspects discusses the number of respondents to the instrument used and the number of workplaces represented, describes the measuring instrument, and presents the data in tabular and, whenever appropriate, graphic form. Some parts provide comments or a synthesis of opinions. Appendixes include the following: initial interview questionnaire; direct cost savings instrument; access to and acceptability of further training instrument; participation in meetings instrument; promotion and job flexibility instrument; "value of the training" survey (four variations).
