Workplace Literacy Language and Numeracy Evaluation Toolkit Project
1 December 2007 – 30 November 2009 (24 months)
The aim of the WoLLNET Project is to research, trial and develop a web-based, user-friendly Toolkit to enable employers, providers and unions to evaluate the impact of workplace basic skills training programmes on learning, and individual and organisational performance.
By basic skills we mean reading, writing, speaking, listening and basic mathematics skills at a level necessary to function and progress at work.
In particular there will be a focus on evaluating the impact of workplace basic skills training programmes in terms of accident reduction, improved customer satisfaction, retention of employees, improved internal communications, reduced absenteeism, improved health and safety, reduced wastage and the positive impact on meeting other key organisational objectives. Consideration will also be given to measuring the Return on Investment in workplace basic skills training.
The WoLLNET project is jointly funded by the European Commission's Leonardo da Vinci Sub-Programme (57.2%), the London Development Agency (21.4%), and the Learning and Skills Council London Region (21.4%).
