Content

This unit investigates the concepts of literacy and numeracy and how these impact the educational outcomes of learners in a broad range of educational settings. It considers government policy developments in relation to literacy and numeracy in a range of communities, and the subsequent implications for people working in Education-related environments. The unit includes different approaches to teaching literacy and numeracy that can be used to improve the educational outcomes for learners in schooling and adult learning contexts. It explores the challenges faced by educators working with communities whose literacy and numeracy skills are relatively low compared to the broader population.
