26TEN launched in Tasmania 

A public awareness campaign for the Tasmanian Adult Literacy Network – or 26TEN – was launched on Wednesday 24 October by the Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings, and the Minister for Education and Skills, Nick McKim.

The 26TEN campaign (based on 26 letters and 10 numbers) is a State-wide initiative supported by a range of community, business and government organisations including LINC Tasmania and Tasmania’s public libraries. The 26TEN strategy involves extending the range of programs and services available to Tasmanians seeking to improve their literacy skills, providing a 1300 number for assistance and offering free literacy awareness and plain English workshops. Each year, October 26 will be recognised as 26TEN Day.

Inaugural 26TEN network members include the TCCI, Unions Tasmania, TasCOSS, the Australian Government and the Small Business Council of Tasmania. For more information see the 26TEN website here: http://www.26ten.tas.gov.au/

The 26TEN logo will be used State-wide
