Five good reasons

Making the Case for Core Skill Development and Improving Workforce Quality and Productivity

This material shows employers how they can identify the need for and make a case for the delivery of core skill training of staff. This resource has been developed by the Industry Skills Council Workplace Communication Network and funded under the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) program of the Australian Government through the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Core skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening, along with understanding and using numbers effectively (numeracy) – are linked to many work activities, particularly learning and communicating.

In fast-moving, technological societies like Australia, these skills are becoming increasingly complex.

Employers, managers and trainers often understand the impact of core skills on workforce safety, compliance and productivity, but it can still be difficult to make a convincing case for your organisation to invest in training or procedural reviews that will improve worker core skills.

This resource provides five good reasons that you can use when making your case for core skill training:

  • Efficiency = quality and productivity
  • Clear messages = achieving key objectives
  • Understanding learners’ core skills = effective training
  • Learning culture = innovation
  • Understanding roles = compliance and quality

The resource will also help you focus on what can be done in the workplace to make sure you have the processes in place to help workers with language, literacy and numeracy issues to achieve their potential, remain safe, and meet your compliance and productivity targets.

The information in this resource, in combination with your broader consideration of workforce development needs, can also help you develop an integrated approach to dealing with language, literacy and numeracy (core skills) in a workforce development plan.

Maximise the Learning: Look for Opportunity (Learning LLN informally)

The resource includes:

  • a DVD featuring three stories demonstrating how “Lucy” a Workplace Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) Practitioner, facilitates LLN skills by looking for training opportunities and “teachable moments”. Each story shows how Lucy targets her teaching and achieves better outcomes for staff and the workplace;
  • a facilitator guide (included on the DVD disk) which provides a range of hints, tips and strategies for Workplace LLN Practitioners and VET Trainers.
