The Social Progress Index, which measures people’s quality of life across the four continents, lists adult literacy rate as a key factor to the foundation of wellbeing. The International Literacy Association states that “The ability to read, write, and communicate connects people and empowers them to achieve things they never thought possible”.  With the literacy requirements of the Diversified Basic Education increasing dramatically, it is imperative that educational stakeholders collaborate for adult learners’ academic success and overall feeling of empowerment. This workshop will review, compare and contrast the content versus disciplinary literacy requirements for the core DBE programs and offer tools to help adult centres devise their literacy action plans and ensuing professional development sessions.
