The Literacy and Employment Readiness Program is a new 2015 program aimed at preparing potential employees and members of the wider community for employment by improving their literacy and numeracy competency. Through our work in many areas around Australia, we have found a real need for this type of training and skills assessment. As such, we aim to tutor and assist those Indigenous candidates wishing to enter employment who find it difficult to pass the rigours of selection due to low literacy and numeracy levels. We will do this in conjunction with partners from the RTO and university sector. We see this program as a potentially enormous mechanism to effect real change in society, and especially in the lives of many Indigenous men and women, and consequently their families and communities.
