"GO Niedersachsen"

Title translated to English: "Go Lower Saxony". - Lower Saxony is one of 16 German federal provinces.

Rationale / Background

According to experts more than 50 per cent of people with difficulties in reading and writing work. At the same time more and more jobs need digital competence. The project „GO Niedersachen“ represents basic education and training in reading and writing at the workplace.


The project „Go Niedersachen“ contacts the target group of people with low reading and writing skills at the workplace where the challenges of reading and writing are identified. Short sequences of about 10-15 training sessions (90 minutes each) help employees to get familiar with essential language and literacy elements at the workplace.

Activities in Detail

The model „GO Niedersachsen“ covers 5 steps:

  • Analysis of job requirement: Key language or terminology is identified and recorded.
  • Description of needs: What specific kinds of reading and writing skills do learners need to develop?
  • Further education: Essential language and literacy elements of the subject or vocational area are taught.
  • Transfer: Gained competence is transferred to new tasks.
  • Evaluation: Measures the success of further education and the transfer.

Target group (recruitment, motivation)

Educationalists go to companies and inform the HR manager about the concept of the training. Then he or she makes it possible to talk to the boss of employees with difficulties in reading and writing. If both are convinced they will motivate their employees to join the training.


Target group are employees with difficulties in reading and writing.

Competence assessment

Course instructors record the participants‘ expectations at the beginning of the course and talk to them at the end of the course about the increase of competence with the help of interview guides.

Validation of learning outcomes

Interview guides help to evaluate the outcomes.


Increase of effectiveness of special literacy tuition by providing an authentic context, authentic materials and daily opportunities through the workplace.

The nonthreatening and supportive environment in which the seminar takes place has the effect of increasing the engagement of adult learners and those who have had previous negative experiences of education. It has an positive impact on the workplace and promotes the value of lifelong learning.
