Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design, implement and evaluate an adult language, literacy and numeracy professional development program.

It applies to those involved in the educational leadership of adult language, literacy and numeracy professional development programs.

Adult language, literacy and numeracy professional development programs include those within training organisations or workplace settings, where an experienced adult language, literacy and numeracy practitioner, provides professional development to other practitioners to develop their skills and knowledge in providing language, literacy and numeracy to adult learners.

Professional development programs also occur in community settings, such as in volunteer adult literacy programs.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
