Priorities: Basic Skills

To improve literacy and numeracy skills in the adult population (16+)

The business community in Ryedale need a workforce that is literate, numerate and with good interpersonal skills (Source: LSC key facts document for Ryedale District Council). Through the Ryedale Strategic Partnership we hope to:

  • Engage with the business sector towards meeting identified need
  • Increase awareness amongst each sector of the work and value of the other sectors
  • Improve levels of literacy and numeracy in the District
  • Improve co-ordination and communication between sectors
  • Increase volunteering
  • Bring reluctant learners into learning
The delivery of the action plan to achieve this outcome will be lead by the Ryedale Area Learning Partnership

Objectives

  • Reduce the proportion of resident population aged 16-60 with poor literacy skills
  • Reduce the proportion of resident population aged 16-60 with poor numeracy skills
  • % of residents who affirm that they carried out voluntary work
