Literacy and numeracy are foundation skills for a successful education and a productive life. Improved literacy and numeracy outcomes encourage higher school retention rates, lead to improved employment opportunities, enhance engagement in society and support future economic prosperity. ACER’s work to develop materials for An Even Start – National Tuition Program, a Commonwealth government initiative, aims to address the learning needs of students who require additional assistance to acquire satisfactory literacy or numeracy skills.
