18 Mar Update: Adult Literacy Specialists – An Endangered Species??
In January we reported on the shrinking number of adult literacy and numeracy teachers in the field due to retirement, casualization of the workforce, policy changes and the closure of specialist tertiary training programs. Whilst Graduate Diploma courses are no longer running face to face at any Australian universities, one is currently offered online by Charles Sturt University. The TAE80113 Graduate Diploma in Adult LLN Practice from the TAE Training Package is being currently being offered online by TAFE Digital NSW, TAFE SA, TAFE Qld and MW Training.
