The Big Plus
is an awareness raising campaign in Scotland
targeting adults who might be unable to achieve their aspirations due to a lack of literacy and/or numeracy skills. Adults who respond to the media promotion are put in touch with a local learning provider where they are invited to participate in a program of personal, dedicated learning activities at a local center. The program aims to help participants reach a level of skills that will enable them to actively engage, with confidence, in personal, family, community and work life. Learning programs are provided by Scottish local authorities
and are free to resident applicants.
