Adult illiteracy is a huge problem in the UK, with nearly 5.2 million adults being functionally illiterate. Individuals who struggle with literacy tend to have higher rates of unemployment, come from impoverished backgrounds and have a higher rate of incarceration than their peers.

Unlike teaching English to primary or secondary school students, it is much easier to get involved with adult literacy programmes in your neighbourhood.

This course gives you an introduction into how to teach literacy to adults. We begin with a discussion about the types of students you are likely to encounter, giving you tips on how to help them succeed in the classroom. We also review methods you can use to teach literacy and include a discussion about the role technology should play in your lessons.
