What is WAALC?

The Western Australian Adult Literacy Council (WAALC) was established with the purpose of ensuring that all adult West Australians have the opportunity to develop the literacy and numeracy skills required to actively participate in our increasingly complex society.

WAALC can represent your interests at a professional and political level, put you in touch with literacy experts across a range of areas and assist in identifying current research in the field. The WAALC executive meets regularly to plan the activities of the Council and is actively involved in the national literacy movement to promote community awareness of the social and political issues in adult literacy.

By providing access to national literacy information about current issues, WAALC strengthens networks in the literacy field and encourages the public to participate in continuous lively discussions on adult literacy issues.

Strategic Plan Framework
Planning WAALC’s future: Have your say

Thanks to WAALC members and conference delegates’ survey responses and, also, to national LLND documents, the Executive Committee has analysed the information and drafted a 5-year Strateic Plan Framework (2023-2028). 
The framework positions WAALC’s vision, purpose, aims, values, goals, priorities, and challenges. 
The framework will direct WAALC’s actions in order to meet its mission:
“To promote an informed awareness, understanding and use of equitable, inclusive, and quality literacy, numeracy, and digital skill services and resources in Western Australia.”
