The Embedded Literacy and Numeracy Whole-of-Organisation Framework

The Embedded Literacy and Numeracy Whole-of-Organisation Framework developed by the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults (NCLANA) is shown below.

It indicates which practices in an educational or training organisation are likely to have a role to play in the whole-of-organisation approach. Obviously, depending on an organisation’s structure and the specific services it provides, some of these practices may be more relevant than others.

At the centre of the Whole-of-Organisation Framework are the organisation’s aim, objectives and benchmarks for embedded literacy and numeracy: What is the organisation trying to achieve with embedding literacy and numeracy? How is the organisation going to know that it has made a difference to outcomes for learners/trainees by embedding literacy and numeracy? What does ‘making a difference’ mean for the organisation?

If the organisation has not yet developed an aim and/or objectives and benchmarks for embedded literacy and numeracy, guidance on how to do this is available (NCLANA, 2014a, 2014b).

The outer circle in the Whole-of-Organisation Framework pictures the measurement of the outcomes of the organisation’s embedded literacy and numeracy practices against the aim, objectives and benchmarks. This includes measurement of learners’/trainees’ literacy and numeracy proficiencies and practices and of the value of the learner/trainee outcomes to stakeholders.

Between the inner and the outer circle are the practice areas within an organisation that contribute to achieving the aim, objectives and benchmarks.

Across the three concentric circles are “ways of working together” that weave the aim, objectives, benchmarks, practice areas and outcomes into a systemic and sustainable approach to embedded literacy and numeracy. These “ways of working together” are shown in italics.
