26TEN is a growing network of people, businesses, communities and government working together to improve adult literacy in Tasmania.
26TEN represents the 26 letters of the alphabet and 10 digits we use for counting - the tools for life. We work with organisations, government and individuals to build reading, writing and maths skills, so all adult Tasmanians have the skills they need.
Too many Tasmanians lack the literacy and numeracy skills they need for life and work. 26TEN is here to change that.
26TEN is for people, businesses, community groups, governments who want to live in a state where all adults have the reading, writing, numeracy and communication skills they need.
If you know someone who'd like some help with everyday maths such as adding up the supermarket shopping, calculating a sale discount, working out how much they can spend each week, then get them to call 1300 00 2610 for practical, friendly help. #adultnumeracy (Thanks Kudelka, for letting us meddle with your scoreboard to demonstrate maths at the footy) ...

Want to be an adult literacy or numeracy tutor? Join the second free, online course that starts 20 July. We've heard it's interesting and practical and there are many Tasmanians who need help. Find out more now. #freefortasmanians #adultliteracy50 Tasmanians are learning how to tutor adults in literacy and numeracy in a free online TasTAFE course.
Supported by Libraries Tasmania’s Literacy Team, TasTAFE teachers have transformed what was previously a face-to-face course, to online, with plenty of participant interaction and feedback.
Over 1000 tutors were trained by TasTAFE in the previous course, but until recently it was only available to people joining Libraries Tasmania’s volunteer literacy service.
This year TasTAFE has made the Tutor Adult Literacy Learners course available free to Tasmanians as part of its commitment to 26TEN, Tasmania’s campaign for adult literacy and numeracy.
Congratulations to the TALL team (pictured) on this fantastic initiative!
The next course will be available in July 2020.
To read more about the Tutor Adult Literacy Learners (TALL) course head to our website.
