26TEN opened applications for its new program titled: 26TEN Communities: Local literacy for work and life. The program offers funding of up to five years to communities where organisations and individuals demonstrate they can work together to lift adult literacy and numeracy skills.
By providing funds where they are needed, Tasmanians will develop their skills where they live or work, supported by local people and organisations. Communities may be based in a local government area or township, or based in an industry interest group or sector.
Given guidance, funding, and time to work together, 26TEN communities will have a significant and sustainable impact on the lives of Tasmanians and our state’s economy.
Applicants should have strong community leadership and be ready to take action. They must demonstrate an ability to collaborate with organisations and individuals to develop the services and activities that will build literacy and numeracy and create lasting change.
