Environmental Scan: Literacy Work in Canada (2007)

Summary Report

During the fall of 2007, Movement for Canadian Literacy conducted an environmental scan of the anglophone literacy field in Canada, gathering data through the use of key informant interviews and a literature review. The intent of this scan was to set the stage for a larger study of the sector. It was necessary to conduct this scan because much of the knowledge about literacy work in Canada is informal and anecdotal.

"First Chance for a real education" - an impact study of adult literacy (2003)

This study has sought to map the impacts that two adult literacy programmes in New Zealand have had on their participants. In recognition of the fact that change achieved by education does not always happen immediately, the study has focussed on the experiences of students who have been out of the programme for some time. Its value lies in its demonstration of the diversity of impacts over the longer term.
