Have you noticed that some parents and carers of your students don’t respond to notices that are sent home from school? Have you come across a poorly written note from an adult at home? This may be because your students’ parents and carers are among the many Tasmanian adults with low literacy skills.

26TEN’s new course introduces plain English principles in a practical way. While aimed at teachers and school administrators, the course is useful for any group or individual who works with young people, including child and family centres, playgroups, speech pathologists and sports administrators.
