Adult Literacy in Australia

Fantastic Phonics has been highly successful for adult literacy in Australia.

In both 2013 and 2014, Fantastic Phonics was invited to provide reading instruction to adults from the Mutitjulu community, at Ayers Rock (Yulara).Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia, which manages Ayers Rock Resort, has a mandate to draw at least 50% of its employees from the local Mutitjulu community, and literacy is required for successful employment. 

In 2013, Fantastic Phonics developed a trial program to provide Foundation Reading Skills to both women and men from the community. The trial was an outstanding success - it showed that Fantastic Phonics program was highly effective for Indigenous adults.

We were invited back to Ayers Rock to give an advanced reading course for a small number of Indigenous women, to assist with their understanding of vocational language.Again, the program was highly successful - the students achieved high levels of competency. 

For the first time, digital multimedia was introduced that showed that Indigenous people were sophisticated in their visual skills, and highly collaborative in their approach to challenges.
