Literacy Aotearoa

Literacy Aotearoa is a national organisation with 37 adult literacy providers in Aotearoa (New Zealand). View our locations here.

Our definition of literacy is...

'Literacy is listening, speaking, reading, writing, numeracy and critical thinking, interwoven with the knowledge of social and cultural practices. Literacy empowers people to contribute to and improve society.'

Literacy Aotearoa has a fundamental commitment to student-centred learning, at no direct cost to the learner.

Learning programmes are provided in a way that enables learners to fulfil their potential, by building on their knowledge and experiences to enhance their confidence and capabilities.

How we work with you:

Literacy Aotearoa will work closely with you to develop and deliver quality programmes that will address your business priorities and meet your employees’ individual literacy, language and numeracy needs.

We will:

  • meet with your key personnel for a site visit
  • identify issues and conduct a needs analysis
  • develop individual programmes for each employee
  • deliver tuition on-site or at our provider’s premises, one-to-one or in small groups, at times that best suit you and your employees.

We can develop programmes that are tailored to fit the real and actual needs of your workplace.  Because these programmes are directly related to your employees’ daily activities, they are more relevant, effective, easily remembered and readily put to use.
