National Support Projects in Wales

Skills for Life Network

The Basic Skills Agency wishes to identify organisations to operate National Support Projects

‘We are fortunate to have been awarded the contract for overseeing the implementation of the National Basic Skills Strategy for Wales, Words Talk Numbers Count. Fortunate because we started the job in 2001 and we are keen to continue it.


To succeed, however, we need help. National agencies can’t deliver strategies effectively alone. Neither would we want to try, particularly as we believe that constructive partnerships work better than a single organisation ploughing its own furrow.


National Support Projects provide essential advice and support in a range of ways for critical elements of the National Strategy. They give a focus for development and embedding of effective practice in priority areas identified in Words Talk Numbers Count.


We want to identify through competitive tender organisations to operate National Support Projects in the following development areas:


1. Young People


2. Adults


3. Jobseekers


4. Offenders and Ex-offenders


5. Groups at risk of Social Exclusion


6. English as an Additional Language [EAL] for Children and English for Speakers of Other Languages [ESOL] for Adults


7. Training and Continuous Professional Development of Teachers and other staff
