April 25, 2014

The final report of the Survey of the Literacy and Essential Skills Workforce is now available. This workforce comprises those who are involved in the provision of Literacy and Essential Skills programs and services to adults, as a paid teacher/instructor, skills assessor, program/curriculum developer, administrator, coordinator, or manager. The report presents important findings that will contribute to the development of the field. Among other things, the results of the analysis indicate an aging but resilient workforce that has expressed a desire for certification and further professional development supports.
