Adult Literacy and Numeracy

16 January 2014

The Business, Innovation and Skills Committee is today announcing a new inquiry into Adult Literacy and Numeracy.

This scope of this inquiry will not be including English for Speakers of Other Languages.

Written submissions of evidence are invited in answer to the following questions:

  • What is the Government currently doing to help adults improve their reading, writing and maths skills?
  • How can the Government make sure that adults have the right skills that can help them find a job, which in turn will help the country, and more widely?
  • What are the best ways to help adults learn how to read, write and do maths—through formal education providers or in a different way?

The deadline for the submission of written evidence is Thursday 6 February 2014.
