Abstract: The discourse associated with adult literacy provision in remote Aboriginal Australia is now intertwined with the notion of training for employment outcomes. The all too common provision of ad hoc, short-term vocational training courses coupled with a ‘bolted-on’ (Bradley, Parker, Perisce, & Thatcher, 2000) approach to literacy reflects the shifting policy environment that typically underpins funding in the remote sector.
