As part of the Literacy and Numeracy Strategy
, the Labor Government is helping schools to continue lifting outcomes by providing principals and teachers access to detailed performance data, evidence-based teaching resources and professional learning for literacy and numeracy leaders in schools.
Writing in The Washington Post, Mr Hargreaves highlighted shortcomings with the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategy
introduced in England under former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Tutors are very committed to their learners and to playing their full part as professionals in progressing the adult literacy and numeracy strategy
. Relationships between tutors and learners, and among learners, are warm, supportive and characterised by good humour and a concern for the welfare of others.
Next we want to see a new literacy and numeracy strategy
for 14-19 year-olds in place by September 2006.
Said Mr Lewis: "High-quality provision underpins the government's adult literacy and numeracy strategy
. In seeking to tackle the skills gaps and the very real impact these have on the lives of the millions of adults in England with poor literacy and numeracy, the resource centre mirrors the key aims of our skills for life strategy."
Junior Education Minister Stephen Twigg said the Government's literacy and numeracy strategy
would be augmented with a number of new initiatives.
