This spreadsheet is based on the original 2001 version of the curriculum. It does not include the changes in the new updated 2009 version of the adult literacy curriculum but could easily be edited to reflect the small number of changes.
The updated versions of the literacy, numeracy and ESOL curricula (which skillsworkshop.org is now based upon) are only available online at
You will need to register (free) before you can access the curricula.

If you do edit the spreadsheet to reflect these changes do share it back again!
