Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 7 July 2008
A literature review followed by discussions with 25 basic skills providers/practitioners and a survey of 200 learners, spread across Wales.

The aims were to gather information on providers’ and practitioners’ views on the challenges involved in improving basic skills capacity in Wales, the key implications for policy and practice in Wales and to identify and discuss any recommendations.

The Basic Skills Strategy for Wales, ‘Words Talk – Numbers Count’, was published by the Welsh Assembly Government in April 2005, setting out a five year approach to raising standards of literacy and numeracy in Wales.

The Strategy is structured by ten priority groups, and ten ‘horizontal themes’, which define the intended beneficiaries and the main areas of intervention of the Strategy.
