Language, Literacy and Numeracy in Construction:
Laying Foundations, Building Success


Funded by SEEDA

Thursday 8th December 2005
Apollo Hotel, Basingstoke, Hampshire


This seminar was organised by The Network and funded by SEEDA to help raise the quality and quantity of LLN provision in workplaces throughout the region. The event brought together providers and employers, giving practitioners the opportunity to hear directly what skills challenges are faced by companies operating in this sector, while also highlighting successful provision from around the region.

This seminar was for practitioners of LLN in the workplace who are already delivering in the construction sector or those wishing to do so.
