National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults Symposiu
This month I attended the Symposium with a special focus on developing literacy and numeracy in adults. The keynote speech from Timote Vaioleti was outstanding. He asks some tough questions, including how do we ensure everyone belongs, and how can we create and sustain hope.
