Formative evaluation of ITO embedded literacy and numeracy projects
- Full report - Formative evaluation of ITO embedded literacy and numeracy projects [PDF, 111 pages, 939kb]
This report summarises the findings of a formative evaluation of the embedded literacy and numeracy projects that were undertaken by industry training organisations (ITOs) in the 2009-2011 period. These Tertiary Education Commission-funded projects were an integral part of the Government’s Literacy, Language and Numeracy Action Plan.
The report outlines the main components of ITO’s approaches to embedding literacy and numeracy within industry training and the development of these strategies over time. It discusses the progress made and the challenges that were experienced, and identifies some of the key factors associated with the effective implementation of ELN in industry training. The evidence is drawn from ITO interviews and in-depth case studies of specific ELN projects.
The report concludes by identifying lessons learned through the evaluation. Its overall conclusion is that the ITOs have largely completed the projects they received funding for, but there is still a considerable amount of work to be done before it could be claimed that development of literacy and numeracy skills has been embedded into industry training arrangements more broadly.
