What is talent?
talent stands for Training Adult Literacy, ESOL and Numeracy Teachers.
talent website was launched in 2000 to support an East London project known as 'talent
East'. This project aimed to increase the supply of adult literacy, ESOL and numeracy
teachers and teacher trainers in the region.
The website was initially funded by the London Development Agency but has since received support from the Central London Learning Partnership, the Learning & Skills Council, the Adult Basic Skills Strategy Unit and the National Research and Development Centre (NRDC) at the Institute of Education.
talent continues to run largely through the commitment of its over 46,000 members who use and support the website, contribute resources and see it as a vital source of information about the sector.
