Literacy

“Literacy” does not simply mean “you can read and write”

Literacy is about all the skills you need to understand what you read, how you communicate information with others and engage fully and confidently in life’s activities and opportunities – at work, at home and in the community. There are many different kinds of literacy. It’s not just about reading, writing, and math; it’s so much more. It also includes other important skills such as computer use, thinking skills, numeracy (scheduling, budgeting, measuring), and language. Not only is math about understanding how to subtract and multiply; it's also about how math applies to daily life, such as working with money or taking inventory at work.

You would come to EWT because:

  • you want to upgrade your skills before returning to high school or college
  • you left school early for a good job, and now need to upgrade your skills to find a new job
  • you want to help your children with their homework
  • you left school because you couldn't learn there or had a bad experience and now you want to try a different approach to learning
  • you finished high school, but you still feel you don't have the skills you need to get ahead
  • something in your life has changed – you have different tasks at work, or you have been laid off and are having difficulty finding a new job with the skills you have
  • you  want to read your mail or do online banking without help
