Learners at entry-level will almost always be in specialist literacy classes. It is difficult to address their literacy-learning needs when literacy is embedded into a vocational programme. (If this is the case then these learners will need the support of a specialist who is able to provide one-to-one or small group tuition.)

  • In a specialist literacy class, learners are likely to belong to one of the three broad profiles we discussed in Module 1 (see next page). To make the programme manageable, it’s important to know which profile best matches each learner. The programme can then be designed to meet the needs of these groups, with more intensive, focussed instruction provided for individuals when necessary.
