International Literacy Day 2018
Date posted: September 7, 2018
Tomorrow is International Literacy Day! This year’s theme is Literacy and Skills Development. The focus will be on youth and adults within the lifelong learning framework, and the links between literacy and the knowledge, skills and competencies needed for work, including transferable and digital skills.
Here’s one of the key messages:
Rapidly changing labour markets require people to develop new skills continuously. Integrated approaches to literacy learning and skills development is a solution that offers lifelong learning opportunities for low-skilled youth and adults to access those necessary skills so that they can improve their lives and livelihoods.
