The Project will increase skills of those working with adult literacies learners and lead to certification on the recognised professional development framework for adult literacies tutors.
Adult literacies includes numeracy and literacy. The term ‘literacies’ is used to encompass not only the skills, but also the knowledge and critical understanding involved in reading, writing and using numbers. This plural term reflects the multiple and diverse ways in which we use literacy and numeracy in our everyday lives.
The course leads to a valuable qualification for those who are interested in undertaking a Tutor Assistant role in adult literacy and numeracy. It is made up of three separate Units:
Raising Awareness of Adult Literacies
Preparing to Work with Adult Literacies Learners
Delivering and Developing Adult Literacies Learning
Potential and existing literacies tutors and those who may need to support adults with literacies needs within their workplaces.
