New at the National Institute for Literacy.
The Workforce Competitiveness Resource Collection includes resources applicable to workforce basic skills education, English language acquisition, and/or technology. Although these topics are separate, some of the selected resources will be useful across topics. For example, a resource listed under English Language Acquisition might also be appropriate for use under Workforce Education, or one listed under Technology might be useful with adults in the workforce.
Since its creation in 1991, the National Institute for Literacy has served as a catalyst for improving opportunities for adults, youth, and children to thrive in a progressively literate world. At the Institute, literacy is broadly viewed as more than just an individual's ability to read. Literacy is an individual's ability to read, write, speak in English, compute, and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family, and in society. The Institute, a federal agency, was established by the National Literacy Act and reauthorized in 1998 by the Workforce Investment Act.
