Basic skills for adults with learning difficulties or disabilities


A consortium led by Skill, NIACE and the Learning and Skills Development Agency published the Freedom to Learn Report in May 2000.

The report contained ten recommendations to address the main barriers faced by adults with learning difficulties or disabilities who want to improve their literacy and numeracy skills.

The consortium has now arranged a national Conference on 11th September 2001 (and a number of regional seminars) to launch two curriculum documents arising from the programme:

  • The draft pre-entry literacy and numeracy curriculum framework
  • Access for All – guidance on making the literacy and numeracy core curricula accessible to all learners
