JOB DESCRIPTION

The Subject Matter Expert Literacy will assist in aligning syllabuses as they develop to the National Literacy Learning Progressions. They will provide advice on sequencing within the syllabuses as they develop. The role will also identify points of progress for students to move to the next stage of learning and identify levels of achievement that should be expected of most students at particular points in their learning.
