The Learner’s Journey

This quarterly edition of Literacy Links is dedicated to the adult leaner, to their commitment to learning and their motivation and resilience.

The ‘typical’ caller to the Hotline is male, between 25 and 44 years of age and from an English speaking background. The ‘typical’ caller to the Hotline has left school at Year 10 or even earlier.

However, the Hotline also gets calls from people who have finished school and gone on to further study but have managed to hide their lower levels of literacy. The Hotline also gets calls from women, young people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

While statistically there might be a ‘typical’ caller to the Hotline, every caller is unique with their own personal background, story and needs. In this edition, we celebrate the uniqueness and bravery of every adult that picks up the phone and dials 1300 6 555 06 to take the next step on the pathway to improved literacy.
