Julie Tolputt is the HR Specialist at West Tamar Council and knows that literacy and numeracy training in the workplace has many benefits. She has been key to organising the 26TEN Employer grant at the Council.
"The West Tamar Council values training and so working with 26TEN and TasTAFE, really makes sense," she said.
"As we introduce new ways of doing things and communicate more with our field crews via email, we know we also need to lift reading, writing and computers skills."
"The value of a 26TEN grant is that it allows Deb from TasTAFE to come into the Council to work one-on-one with employees. It's a great way to build the confidence people need to learn."
