The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is pleased to present the inaugural National Adult English Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Conference in Melbourne on 4 May, 2012. The conference is a response to increasing national and state interest in addressing and improving the LLN skills of Australian youth and adults participating in the vocational, education and training (VET) sector and in Australia’s workforce.
Presentations will cover the main topics and research regarding the LLN skills of the Australian adult population from an industry and training perspective, as well as practical issues such as identifying and assessing LLN skills and supporting learners and trainees in improving their LLN skills.
The conference is designed for managers and co-ordinators of training and learning in both industry and the VET sector. It will highlight local and international research in this area and present practical solutions and expertise from within industry and VET.
