Improving the Literacy System

AlphaPlus supports a people-first literacy system that’s equitable, sustainable and provides diverse learning opportunities for adult learners and literacy practitioners.

While our work focuses on supporting educators in creating and discovering excellent uses of technology to enhance learning and to engage learners in imaginative and stimulating ways, it’s grounded in the experiences and aspirations of adult literacy learners.

Focusing on people rather than systems acknowledges that relationships are a key component of learning outcomes.

A people-focused approach benefits everyone.

  • Adult learners have access to high-quality, flexible learning environments and deepen their understanding of the potential of technology.
  • Educators are able to be more responsive to learners’ needs and develop a creative blended learning curriculum.
  • Capacity builders can enable a cohesive system that supports learner-centred outcomes.
  • Funders and policy-makers are able to build relationships and achieve impact.
