Description

Descriptor 

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who apply highly specialised skills and knowledge in the field of adult language, literacy and numeracy practice. In these roles, they generate and evaluate complex ideas through the analysis of policy, information and concepts at an abstract level; and design and implement appropriate responses through a combination of research, targeted strategies for language, literacy and numeracy programs in different contexts, and the application of teaching practices.

This qualification uses the term 'adult literacy and numeracy' to mean the skills required to understand and use various forms of print and digital text in day-to-day activities at home, at work and in the community (OECD, 2001).

The qualification uses the term 'language' to talk about speaking, listening, reading, writing and visual communication skills. In its broadest sense, language involves the words, verbal structures and gestures we use to convey meaning. We are also talking about using words and grammatical structures and other meaning support systems (e.g. gestures when speaking and listening, punctuation and formatting when reading and writing) to make meaning or to understand somebody else's meaning. (Taking the Lead, 2006)

This qualification responds to the need for all practitioners to have a set of strategies to meet learners' language development needs. This is not language in the strict sense of language acquisition (as defined within the TESOL discipline), but rather the development of relevant and appropriate language repertoires depending on the context.

The diversity of learners attending adult language, literacy and numeracy provision requires effective and innovative educational leaders, program managers and researchers with responsibility for adult language, literacy and numeracy policy development and response, and program design and review. TAE80110 Vocational Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Leadership develops the skills and knowledge required to fulfil this responsibility in these roles.

Adult language, literacy and numeracy delivery contexts include vocational education settings, workplaces, and the community. A range of training organisations (public, not-for-profit, community and private) provides adult language, literacy and numeracy skills development.

Job roles 

This qualification may apply to those in roles with responsibility for adult language, literacy and numeracy policy development and response, as well as program design and review. Job roles and titles vary across different organisational contexts. Possible job titles and roles relevant to this qualification include:

  • adult literacy and numeracy teacher or leader, training organisation
  • practitioner or coordinator, Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) program
  • senior educator, teaching and learning, training organisation
  • adult literacy and numeracy learning resource developer
  • program coordinator, training organisation
  • educational consultant
  • workforce development leader
  • policy advisor on language, literacy and numeracy.
