by Ann Kelly
Price: $5.00
Literacy Practices & Clerical Competency Standards
Click to enlarge

"In this paper, the author argues that rather than relying on school-based, and thus generalisable and transferable notions of literacy content that may be inappropriate for preparing workers for specific positions, adult literacy practitioners need to become familiar with the tasks and texts that competent workers in particular industries and occupations use, and to understand how they fit within the broader social environments of individual workplaces. "The author examines two activities that are associated with the position of level three clerical-administrative trainees and then draws implications for literacy practitioners who are required to provide vocational training and assessment to meet specific competency standards. "She finds that 'it is imperative that trainers and assessors have a clear understanding of the actual practices in which their clients regularly engage' (p.20) and briefly discusses some of the issues involved in gaining this knowledge. Further, Kelly urges practitioners to deliver training flexibly and innovatively, especially those assisting workers to attain particular competency standards."
