Brush up your skills

Adult literacy and numeracy means different things to different people. Many people think that Adult Literacy is just for those who have difficulty reading or writing at all. In reality a wide range of people get support at different times with different challenges.

Some of the areas that we have helped with include:
•    Help with written job selection tests (police/ fire service exams; apprenticeships etc)
•    Help with everyday tasks (banking/ shopping lists/ budgeting)
•    Helping mums, dads and carers to support  their child with homework
•    Help with approaches to writing (sentence structure/ formatting paragraphs etc)
•    Help with reading or writing for pleasure

Everyone who comes along for support has their own reasons for doing so and sets their own targets. For some a little help goes a long way and they get what they need in a few weeks, for others we offer longer term support to get them where they want to be.
