Com­mu­ni­cat­ing with Familes - a work­place lit­er­acy project
Funded through the Tas­man­ian Government’s 26TEN initiative

This project is focused on improv­ing the writ­ten and oral com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills of edu­ca­tors. The resources, lessons and sup­port mate­ri­als that are being pro­duced are addedd to a web­site called Alfresco.

These resources have been pre­pared as part of a struc­tured approach to improv­ing lit­er­acy in spe­cific ser­vices. The ser­vices involved have care­fully assessed their learn­ing needs and pre­pared a learn­ing plan with the sup­port of an Adult Lit­er­acy Sup­port Offi­cer (ALSO).

Edu­ca­tors and ser­vices are wel­come to use and mod­ify these resources to suit their par­tic­u­lar ser­vice and edu­ca­tor learn­ing needs, but are encour­aged to do this as part of a planned approach. There are sup­port mate­ri­als on Alfresco that will assist ser­vices to do this!
