Section 3. Delivering LLN as part of a whole organisation approach

It is important to ensure that teachers:

  • are appropriately qualified
  • take account of issues of equality and diversity
  • use high quality materials and resources,

and learners:

  • receive the right level and quality of support and teaching
  • have regular, ongoing assessment and feedback
  • are given the opportunity to study for a nationally recognised qualification, leading to provision that meets their needs and aspirations.

Learning aims success rates have increased by 34% (18-24yrs) and by 25% (25+yrs) compared with the same period last year. Job outcome rate increased from 7.6% to 14.3% compared with the same period last year… centres took on board embedding Skills for Life and this was reflected in the recent Ofsted inspection when good practice was observed in embedding literacy and numeracy.
