As part of the coverage of Adult Learners’ Week, GMTV has included a link to the www.bwsbusiness.com basic literacy test.
The Basic Writing Skills basic literacy test has shown that 68% of the UK adult population has below average basic literacy skills, a statistic that could significantly affect the long term prospects of the UK economy.
These results support the Skills for Life findings which estimate that 5.2 million adults in the UK are at, or below, the literacy standard expected of an 11 year old. The article on www.gm.tv asks readers to take the free literacy test with a link to www.bwsbusiness.com .
