26TEN is a network of organisations and individuals working together to improve adult literacy and numeracy in Tasmania. Better literacy and numeracy means a better Tasmania for all. Get help. 26TEN has an ambitious ten-year strategy to improve adult literacy and numeracy in Tasmania.
Across Australia, all states and territories face a similar challenge. Tasmania is doing something about it.
What sets Tasmania apart is we have a long-term strategy for change; 26TEN Tasmania: Tasmania’s Strategy for Adult Literacy and Numeracy 2016-2025. It sets the framework for action for businesses, community groups, government, education and training providers, and individuals, who want to live in a state where all adults have the reading, writing, numeracy and communications skills they need for life.
