With the "AlphaDekade" - Nationale Dekade für Alphabetisierung und Grundbildung (National Decade for Literacy and Basic Education) the federal government, the Länder and their partners want to significantly improve the reading and writing skills of adults in Germany from 2016 to 2026. The central success factor should be to promote more basic education offers and to attract more people to take advantage of these offers. The question of how adults with low literacy skills can be reached and activated for learning is the central challenge of all measures. In a work program to be updated annually, the Board of Trustees of the "AlphaDekade" defined how these goals should be achieved by means of five fields of action (1st Public Relation, 2nd Research, 3rd Learning, 4th Professionalization, 5th Structures). The website contains many interesting projects (best practice examples), tools for the development of literacy and basic education programs, as well as information on funding opportunities and tendering procedures. >>> More about the AlphaDakade in "General Agreement on the National Decade for Literacy and Basic Skills 2016-2026".
