Provider Toolkit: Setting Up Workplace Language, Literacy and Numeracy Provision

The aim of the Provider Toolkit website is to bring together a pool of resources for workplace language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) in order to make good practice freely available to practitioners, managers, learning representatives and brokers, and thereby avoid the need to ‘reinvent the wheel’.

Following two previous rounds of funding from East Midlands Development Agency and the South East England Development Agency, maintenance and further development of the website is currently funded by the Department for Education and Skills.

How does the website work?

There are two main sections to the website, with both presenting a range of guidelines, proformas, exemplar materials, case studies, and relevant links to external websites. The first section is the Core Process, which documents the process of setting up and running workplace LLN programmes in detail, from building capacity, marketing and promotion, and needs analysis, through to delivery and evaluation. The second main section is The Vault, which focuses specifically on the teaching and learning cycle, including a strong focus on embedded learning.

Provider Toolkit resources

Among the many resources you can currently access on the website are:

  • Sample marketing materials aimed at employers
  • A proposal to employers following a first visit.
  • An Organisational Needs Analysis proforma
  • Guidelines on producing a Learning Needs Report
  • Examples of ILPs and session plans
  • An attendance tracking proforma
  • Guidelines on producing an Evaluative Report

How do I access the site?
