We recommend that additional funding of $60 million commencing in 2012–13, increasing progressively to S493 million annually by 2020, be provided to support needs of vulnerable learners. These programs will assist in delivering more personalised learning as well as the better integration of language, literacy and numeracy An expansion of foundation skills programs in workplaces and for the unemployed Extending the student assistance Start-up Scholarship to VET students. 8

18 Numeracy levels Level 1 Tasks in this level require the respondent to show an understanding of basic numerical ideas by completing simple tasks in concrete, familiar contexts where the mathematical content is explicit with little text. Tasks consist of simple, one-step operations such as counting, sorting dates, performing simple arithmetic operations or understanding common and simple percents such as 50%. Level 3 Tasks in this level require the respondent to demonstrate understanding of mathematical information represented in a range of different forms, such as in numbers, symbols, maps, graphs, texts, and drawings. Skills required involve number and spatial sense, knowledge of mathematical patterns and relationships and the ability to interpret proportions, data and statistics embedded in relatively simple texts where there may be distractors. Tasks commonly involve undertaking a number of processes to solve problems 18
