Multifangled is a small, independent company that has been working in education for almost 25 years. Established by Jan Hagston and Dave Tout as Skill Ed P/L in 1990, the company changed its name to multifangled in 2004.

multifangled specialises in adult and youth education with a focus on literacy and numeracy, applied learning and educational practices appropriate for non-traditional education settings, VET and community education and/or disadvantaged groups.

As a small independent organisation, we partner with other socially responsible consultants and organisations to deliver innovative, high quality outcomes.


See the video of Dave Tout speaking on a panel at the Canadian Centre for Literacy’s 2014 Summer Institute: Exploring PIAAC Data – Enriching research, supporting practice. The other panellist was a colleague on the Numeracy Expert Group for PIAAC, Jeff Evans. The topic of the presentation was “Lessons about maths and numeracy from PISA and PIAAC”.
