Community Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Provision in Australia: Diverse Approaches and Outcomes. Support Document
Dymock, Darryl
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This study examined non-accredited community language, literacy and numeracy provision in Australia. A diverse range of providers assist many adults who do not need or cannot yet cope with accredited training. Growth in self-confidence appears as important as development of literacy and numeracy skills, with teachers and tutors playing a key role in this. The support document includes a literature review, survey results, and seven case studies. List of eligible organisations that responded to survey is appended. (Contains 85 tables.) [This document was produced by the author based on research for the report, "Community Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Provision in Australia: Diverse Approaches and Outcomes" (ED499762) and was funded under the Adult Literacy National Project by the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.]
