What is the NSW Council?
The NSW Adult Literacy & Numeracy Council is the peak professional body representing teachers, workers and others interested in the field of adult literacy and numeracy in NSW. It was established in the late 1970s and is affiliated with the Australian Council of Adult Literacy (ACAL). Our membership includes representatives from ACE, TAFE, community organisations, AMES, Corrective Services, LLNP providers, workplace programs, youth programs, libraries and universities. Membership is made up of practitioners, policy makers, program makers, researchers and academics across the adult literacy and numeracy field.
The Council's role is to promote awareness, understanding and cooperation amongst providers in the field of adult literacy, numeracy and adult learning by:
- promoting research
- lobbying government
- conduction professional development workshops
- publishing a regular journal
