Face to face training is held at Leederville campus of North Metropolitan TAFE, corner Oxford and Richmond streets, Leederville.

Professional Development

WAALC Conference 2020 - Collaborative Practices – Creative ideas
Friday April 17 2020
NM TAFE Northbridge.

The Western Australian Adult Literacy Council Conference will bring together literacy professionals to share ideas, teaching tips, resources tried and tested and tips for working with a range of learners.

“Sometimes all it takes is the opportunity to see successful teaching in place to spark new ideas, generate exciting conversations and revitalise workplace actions.”

Keynote Speaker: Dr Anne Aly MP

The day program has now been released and there are a number of very interesting workshops, including “Engaging the Disengaged”, “Struggling Adult Readers – what instruction and support is of greatest benefit” and “Hands-on spelling”.   Choose your sessions on the day.

Lotterywest scholarships will be made available for volunteers to attend the conference free of charge.  Anyone wanting to apply for a Lotterywest scholarship must first register for the conference.  Please let Central Office know if you are intending on applying for one of these.

Information on the conference can be found at

We received fantastic feedback to the RWN Tutor Conference held on Saturday November 2.  Database records will now show you tutor attendance at specific workshops.

Please encourage your tutors to attend professional development regularly.
