This paper provides a description and preliminary review of the design and implementation of the First Year Literacy Initiative (FYLI) in the School of Education at James Cook University. The FYLI represents a coordinated attempt to improve the academic literacy of first year pre-service teachers. It is an evolving response to national calls for greater participation in higher education for students from rural, regional, low-socioeconomic, and Indigenous backgrounds (Bradley, 2008), and state calls for greater attention to the literacy training and testing of pre-service teachers (Masters, 2009). Preliminary results from a pilot study of the FYLI reinforce the value of a cyclic, coordinated, contextualised and connected, sustainable, and adaptable approach to literacy learning in a tertiary context.
