Recognising the improvement of lives through Language, Literacy and Numeracy

Recognising the improvement of lives through Language, Literacy and Numeracy image

"The opportunity to improve foundation skills can have a profound effect on the way people view themselves and engage with their local community.

Each year, the Australian Training Awards recognise the work of Australia’s best language, literacy and numeracy practitioners.

Now in its fourth year, the annual selection of the Excellence in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice Award winner is no easy feat. The Australian Training Awards program manager says the common denominator in the selection of the top three finalists in the Excellence in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice Award each year is an unwavering passion like no other for genuinely wanting to help people from all walks of life gain the essential skills required to participate in society – from settling into a new language, to finding a career and purpose through foundation skills development.

The Excellence in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice Award recognises innovation and excellence by an individual who is involved in improving the language literacy and numeracy skills in an educational,community or workplace context.

In 2016, the finalists were Jean Ditton from TAFE Queensland’s North Pimlico Campus and Petra Davis from TAFE Queensland’s Meadowbrook youth program. Jean said the award was of huge importance to the LLN community."
