Plans for 2014

Thank you to the many people who have shown such interest in Easy English and have begun or continued the process of planning and developing Easy English documents during the last 12 months.

As the Christmas break approaches, and the new year arrives, it is a great time to review the place of Easy English in your communities and for your workers. 

Have the recently released PIAAC http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/4228.0Main+Features12011-12?OpenDocument results or PISA http://www.acer.edu.au/documents/PISA-2012-In-Brief.pdf results generated much discussion in your organisation? Do you need to know more about these significant international surveys on functional literacy?

Has the priority for developing Easy English shifted in your organisation in the last 12 months?
What are the plans for including Easy English development in new projects in 2014?
Do your staff need training and support to write or develop their skills in Easy English?

Watch this space for some new resources which are due out early in the new year.
I am also planning to run some training in 2014 (short modules and full day) based on feedback from you. Keep checking my blog for when they are announced, or go to my website. www.accesseasyenglish.com.au
 
I will be available in January, however, will be working reduced hours.  Please leave me an email or phone message about your Easy English questions, projects or quotes you may need.
