Improving Assertiveness and Decision Making
Empowering adult education with teacher resources is key for providing access to literacy and numeracy for all adults, whether in work environments, communities, or prisons. Resources and programs that equip adults with the necessary skills and knowledge may include workplace programs as well as community initiatives and prison incarceration services. Teacher resources allow educators to meet unique student requirements by understanding individual adult student needs before adapting lessons accordingly – helping adult students meet national literacy standards required in workplace environments.
As part of its plan to assist over 7 million adults living in the UK who experience literacy or numeracy difficulties, Adult Literacy Core Curriculum was implemented in the year 2000 with this focus in mind. It entails the following principles for its design:
- Assess learner’s current and required skills. Utilize relevant aspects of coursework to meet learners’ needs while creating assessments suitable for exam purposes.
- Customise learning experiences so learners can apply lessons directly to their personal contexts and environments for the optimal practice of their skills in real-life environments.
- Methodically track student progress through coursework to identify formative and summative learning experiences and establish an examination regimen that meets set standards.
Adult literacy refers to the ability for adults to converse, listen, read, write, and respond effectively; our curriculum strives to foster these abilities through three distinct types of literacy learning – Text Sentence Word Focus – using reading fluency as the core material and creating engaging study material with these dynamic areas intertwined to facilitate in-depth student understanding and enable meaningful connections among them.
