The Workplace Literacy Project
The Disability Workforce Innovation Network (DWIN) project identified workplace language, literacy and numeracy skills as an important workforce development focus in preparing for the requirements of the NDIS workplace.
Funded in Tasmania by 26TEN, NDS worked with disability service providers to see how we can strengthen workforce skills in these areas. The Tasmanian Language, Literacy and Numeracy Action Plan 2016-2017 provides a roadmap for the activities we are undertaking.
The cost of low-level, workforce literacy skills can be significant. This can however be mitigated by the benefits experienced by employers engaged in workplace literacy projects. Read a summary of research about this in the Workplace Literacy flyer (with accessible version).
