Literacy Providers

Literacy courses are conducted by TAFE colleges, private training providers, neighbourhood learning centres, libraries and workplaces.

Reading and Writing Hotline logoThe Reading and Writing Hotline

This is a key starting point to find out what courses might be available near you.

Ph 1300 6555 06

When you ring the Hotline a consultant will talk to you about your reading, writing, spelling or maths needs and give you details of the adult literacy and numeracy classes available in your local area. If there are no suitable classes available locally the Hotline consultant will give you details of how you can get support by distance delivery. The Hotline consultant can also help you:

  • Get support with your learning if you are a trainee or an apprentice

  • Get information about workplace language and literacy programs

If you would like to help others with literacy, the Hotline can give you information on how to become an adult literacy volunteer tutor.



Some state associations also have information about literacy course providers.
