Vocational ed - Are you ready?

3rd July 2009 at 01:00

A learning resource has been launched to help people training for vocational careers to boost their literacy and numeracy skills.

The Work Skills Academy CD-Rom has been developed by The Big Plus, the Scottish Government's adult literacy and numeracy awareness-raising campaign. It has been tailored to help those training to work in the construction, hairdressing, retail and care sectors.

The disc will give practical advice and assistance on areas such as spelling, formal and informal writing, punctuation, numeracy and listening skills. It will be distributed to Get Ready for Work providers and the network of adult literacy and numeracy partnerships across the country.
