This article looks at how literacy, language and numeracy providers have responded to low-level learners. Using data from a national survey of literacy, this article first looks at broad categories of learners within different types of provision, their characteristics, how provision caters for them and the implications for teachers. A discussion on the key messages emerging from the findings and the implications for policy and provision for the learners and the system concludes the article.
