Literacy Face to Face

Literacy Face to Face

Literacy Face to Face is a resource to assist volunteer adult literacy tutors and others who want to help someone improve their literacy. It may also be useful to support the delivery of adult literacy tutor training programs. This resource has been developed by Pamela Osmond, author of So you Want to Teach an Adult to Read (1985), and draws on her wide experience in the field of adult literacy and volunteer adult literacy tutor training.

This publication has been produced on behalf of the national training system. It was funded under the Adult Literacy National Project administered by the Australian National Training Authority until 24 August 2005 and subsequently by the Commonwealth of Australia from that date.
