Foundation skillsThe National Foundation Skills Strategy Project needs your help with two significant and related pieces of work relevant to professionals involved in strengthening foundation skills.

Help us make sure that strengthening foundation skills in the workplace context is represented by getting involved!

NCVER survey

The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) is conducting a survey of people who are delivering foundation skills. Information gathered through the survey will be invaluable for supporting the National Foundation Skills Strategy for Adults and for shaping future foundation skills initiatives.

Building the capacity of those who deliver foundation skills is a key component of the Strategy, but to do this we need to know more about who is delivering foundation skills, such as the range of skills and expertise held by practitioners, the professional development they’ve undertaken and what further skill development is desired. NCVER is working with the National Foundation Skills Strategy Project to find out more about both paid and volunteer practitioners delivering foundation skills via a short online survey.

The survey takes 10 – 20 minutes and is open until 19 December 2014.

Stories from the Field

Telling a story and listening to the stories of others’ facilitates a process of ‘shared sensemaking’ and an opportunity to consider the myriad factors that contribute to a practitioner’s career trajectory and professional development. This activity is about providing practitioners with the opportunity to tell their story, listen to others and reflect on the journey. Stories gathered through the process will be used to gain a clearer understanding of the range of credentials, experience and professional development approaches that contribute to the professional identity of practitioners delivering language, literacy and numeracy and foundation skills in Australia today.
