What we do
26TEN unites business, community and government in a statewide effort to raise adult literacy and numeracy levels.
Our name comes from the 26 letters of the alphabet, and the ten digits we use for counting.
Since 2012, 26TEN has been Australia’s only statewide, comprehensive and long-term response to lifting adult literacy and numeracy.
The 26TEN vision is for all Tasmanians to have the literacy and numeracy skills they need to participate fully in work and life.
1. Everyone knows about adult literacy and numeracy.
2. Everyone is supported to improve their skills and to help others.
3. Everyone communicates clearly.
