Listening, speaking, reading, writing and numeracy demands are embedded in many of the tasks that adults need to undertake in real life across a wide variety of contexts.

The Learning Progressions are designed to assist in planning foundation programmes where improved outcomes for learners in literacy, language and numeracy are desired.

The progressions provide a framework and language that can be used to identify next steps or gaps for learners as they develop expertise in these important areas. They have not been designed to link up with any qualification.
