Life literacy signals the importance of lifelong and life-wide literacy and learning. It’s the literacy skills you need to live your life full and the new skills you need to acquire throughout your life.
Workplace, family and community are important areas in your life where developing your essential skills can result in a more productive and more successful life experience.
Having adequate literacy skills means being able to understand, evaluate, use and engage with written texts. It also means being able to participate in society, achieve your goals, and develop your knowledge and potential.
Research shows that adults who have inadequate literacy skills are more likely to have poorer overall health, lower salaries, and lower levels of participation in their community.
