Aboriginal Adult English Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) in the Northern Territory: A Statistical Overview

The HEPPP funded, Whole of Community Engagement (WCE) initiative within the Office of Pro Vice-Chancellor – Indigenous Leadership (OPVC-IL) at Charles Darwin University has recently published the report Aboriginal Adult English Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) in the Northern Territory: A Statistical Overview (Shalley and Stewart).

The report was launched in Darwin on 12 September 2017 to a diverse audience of over 90 individuals, organisations and government agencies attending a pre-conference Symposium on Indigenous adult English LLN as part of the Australian Council for Adult Literacy’s (ACAL) 2017 national conference. The report, an activity of a WCE Strategic Priority Project (SPP), is one of the actions outlined in an Action Statement arising from a November 2016 workshop where over 80 participants agreed that there is a significant policy and service gap, and a need for Indigenous-led, bipartisan, collective and sustained responses linked to successful models and approaches.

An updated version of the Action Statement was agreed at this Symposium, and released on 14 September 2017.
