LCNB Releases Report on Barriers Between Language Levels and Adult Literacy in NB
The Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick has released a new research report, Identifying Barriers Between Language Levels and Adult Literacy Learning.
The study, funded by the Adult Literacy Funding Program – New Brunswick Innovation Fund, outlines specific barriers to accessing literacy learning programs that adults – including newcomers – experience in terms of access and engagement, program relevance, and delivery methods.
Carried out from September 2021 to March 31, 2022, this inquiry deepens our understanding of the context in which organizations and service providers deliver adult literacy programs and provides valuable insights from learners who access those programs. The report presents the key findings from the study and eight recommendations to reduce barriers between language levels and adult literacy learning.
