Media Release: OECD Survey of Adult Skills

Adult Learning Australia (ALA) and the Australian Council of Adult Literacy (ACAL) urge the Morrison Government not to withdraw Australia from the OECD Survey of Adult Skills.

The OECD Survey of Adult Skills (or PIAAC) measures adult skills and competencies in three key areas: literacy, numeracy, problem solving in technology-rich environments.

Data from the last PIAAC survey indicated that 44% of Australian adults lacked the literacy skills they need for work and to cope with everyday life.
