The Adult Literacy and Numeracy Curriculum Framework for Scotland advocates the Scottish approach to adult literacy and numeracy learning and teaching. This social practices approach puts the learner at the centre, working to a curriculum negotiated around his or her own uses and contexts for literacy and numeracy, and aims to promote independence and critical awareness.
The framework's purpose is to:
promote the Scottish philosophy and approach to adult literacy and numeracy
in whatever context they are delivered
show how this can be done with the learner at the centre of the process
improve the quality of Scottish adult literacy and numeracy provision.
