What is workplace literacy?

Reading, writing, maths and communication people do at work.

Why teach literacy in the workplace?

Provides a real context, uses workplace documents, gives people
immediate opportunities to practice, improves bottom line – funding available.

How is workplace literacy different from literacy in other settings?

Focused on what people need to do in their job in your workplace.

How is workplace different from industry training?

Literacy is implicit in workplace training. Employees may be unable to complete industry training or embrace new IT developments because they need to develop workplace literacy skills.

Ensure that your staff have the primary skills (language, literacy and numeracy) required for their role, enable further training to be effective with improved comprehension. Contact us today to discuss options available to start a programme either on site or off site.
