Get the latest on foundation skills and get the edge for your RTO at the ACER National Adult LLN Assessment Conference 2014

Monday, April 7 2014

The 3rd Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) National Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Conference, taking place in Melbourne this 1-2 May, is an excellent opportunity for members to find out the latest programs, policies and practices, giving them the edge in targeting students' and industry's foundation skills needs.

With members increasingly strengthening their foundation skills delivery and following new opportunities around foundation skills specialisation,  the conference is also a great opportunity to network and share ideas with colleagues.

The conference will feature presentations and workshops from private and community providers, small enterprises, WELL programs, TAFE and from school-based and non-school based youth programs.There will be presenters from regional, metropolitan and remote indigenous programs, as well as insights from international and national researchers.

With the recent release of findings for Australian adults’ foundation skills’ performance, measured through the Programme for International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), the conference will also examine the implications of the PIAAC findings for both policy and practice in VET, workplace and schools education; and the implications for lifelong learning and full participation in the community and the workplace.
