The purpose of these guidelines is to support Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) to strengthen and extend opportunities for adults to improve their literacy, language and numeracy skills within the training provision of specific industry-related skills.

The theoretical framework provides the rationale for seeking opportunities to strengthen literacy and numeracy in workplace training.

These guidelines indicate the ways in which the theoretical understandings can be applied when ITOs, employers and trainees are developing training arrangements. The guidelines build on work that has been undertaken by ITOs since 2007 to embed literacy and numeracy into industry training.

ITOs are recognising and optimising opportunities for literacy and numeracy teaching and learning as the norm rather than the exception. These guidelines are intended to support and sustain this shift by indicating areas where literacy and numeracy can be strengthened through changes to policies and practice.

Each guideline suggests specific actions and prompts that can be used to guide the process of strengthening literacy and numeracy. The actions and prompts do not cover everything that an ITO needs to consider, and some will not be relevant to all ITOs .
