Workplace literacy & numeracy
Our specialty area is workplace focused literacy, which means we work with companies to lift productivity through developing the literacy and numeracy skills of employees in the workplace.
Literacy is the foundation for many of the tasks performed in the workplace. Workplace literacy isn’t just ‘reading, writing and arithmetic’ –it also includes interpersonal skills such speaking and listening, critical thinking and problem solving. Workplace literacy and numeracy training is an investment in your business, not a cost.
The Government provides funding to help companies like yours to lift your employees’ literacy and numeracy skills relevant to your workplace. To find out how Venture Group can help you access this Government assistance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or read more about our workplace literacy services.
