Language Literacy and Numeracy
LLN – Version 1.0
Language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) are the essential underpinning skills that enable people to be productive in their work, to continue to learn and develop, and to participate fully in society.
All employers, employees, vocational trainers and others responsible for workforce development need to understand that LLN skills are an ongoing and integral part of workforce development.
Adult language, literacy and numeracy skills are recognized as fundamental to improved workforce participation, productivity and social inclusion.
Local and international studies have consistently demonstrated the correlation between high levels of language, literacy and numeracy and positive outcomes at the national, enterprise and individual levels.
Language, literacy and numeracy, core skills and foundation skills are different ways of describing the skills needed to communicate at work, at home, and in the community.
Language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills are used every day by all people for a range of reasons – personal, social and work. The skills required differ according to the reasons for using them. Every single learner who engages in vocational training will be taking on LLN challenges or, at the very least, will be using existing skills in different ways.
Language, literacy and numeracy is the traditional way of referring to the ability to speak, listen, read and write in English, and to use mathematical concepts.
