Building a Legacy – A compendium of resources for those interested in developing literacy and numeracy provision in the workplace
This compendium was developed with the input of practitioners and organisers from across Yorkshire and Humberside. The development was supported by the LSC and membership of the working groups compiling the compendium included staff from the TUC Regional Learning Services, PD Net, the then East Riding, Lincolnshire and Humberside resource centres, tutors from the West Yorkshire Basic Skills Workplace Network along with representatives from colleges involved in workplace delivery and the Regional Co-ordinator for the Skills for Life Quality Initiative. The Move On Regional Adviser along with the then Employer Training Pilot Regional Adviser led the development and collated the listings.
The selection of materials for review was based on four criteria: the absence of a deficit approach; accessibility in terms of website or other location; suitability for the range of target groups identified and quality – materials which had been published nationally were given priority.
The resources in this collection are identified for three types of activity: promotion and marketing; recruitment and signposting and delivery and achievement. The potential target users identified are:
- intermediaries such as Investors in People practitioners and brokers.
- union learning representatives and shop stewards
- employers and human resource staff
The process for developing this compendium
A one day development session was held at which the working groups reviewed resources and wrote a commentary on their potential use.
The compendium was trialled through two workshops at the Yorkshire and Humberside event and further amendments made.
