2017 NSWALNC Conference - Creating Spaces for Learning and Teaching in ABE - Keynote Presentations

2017 marked 40 years since the establishment of the NSW Adult Literacy and Numeracy Council and the establishment of the Australian Council for Adult Literacy. The 2017 NSW ALNC Conference was a forum in which participants considered the different spaces in which ABE demands exist, and what participants in the field can do to shape the ways in which the demands could be met. We asked: Where are the spaces to debate policy, practice and pedagogy in ABE?

2017 Feedback to: Foundation Skills Professional Standards Framework

The NSW Council for Adult Literacy and Numeracy appreciate this opportunity to provide feedback on the draft Foundation Skills Professional Standards Framework (February 2017). Some of our members had attended the workshops held in Sydney in March, which they found helpful in understanding some of the assumptions and intent of the Framework and the associated tools.

The Council is the peak professional body for adult literacy and numeracy practitioners, including teachers, trainers, program managers, and researchers in NSW. We have been involved in the professional development of LLN practitioners, and advocacy for the field for 40 years. We hope the feedback that draws on our collective knowledge and experience in the field will be considered in the next stage of development of the Professional Standards Framework.  

We limit our feedback to the following four key areas:

1.     The professional competency model of expertise

2.     Domains of the Standard

3.     The uses of the Framework

4.     The concept of Foundation Skills (download to see more)

Views and concerns of the NSW adult literacy and numeracy workforce - NSWALNC Member Survey 2016

In 2016 the Council conducted a survey of members to gain a picture of the NSW adult literacy and numeracy workforce and their current concerns for their students and the adult literacy and numeracy field. There were 78 respondents to the survey and their profiles mirror those in similar workforce surveys: predominately female, mostly employed part time, delivering face to face training in a classroom setting and an ageing workforce. A summary of responses can be downloaded here.
