I got asked this question the other day.  I'd like you to think about how you would answer a skeptic.

Has the emphasis on literacy and numeracy in vocational courses improved learners' literacy and numeracy over the last five years?

What would you say?

My reply was;

Yes, but not in the way we expected or to the degree expected.

My research findings are a little less positive regarding 'actual' learner gains than many other studies, yet indicate that programmes and tutors make a huge difference in many (but not all) learners' lives.  Embedded L&N is a big part of this.

What needs to change?
