What’s the Baseline Knowledge for Embedding Literacy and Numeracy?

If you are a tutor, training, or otherwise involved in adult education at levels 1 to 3 you should be embedding literacy and numeracy into your trade or other vocational content.

You need to understand what the baseline knowledge and skills are for embedding literacy and numeracy.

There are seven key areas to focus on:

  • NZ Context
  • Maori LN
  • Mapping

What professional development have you done?

If you’ve completed the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace), otherwise known as the NCALNE (Voc), you might have seen these seven key knowledge and skill areas represented in the infographic on the right.

The seven headings show a process for embedding literacy and numeracy. They complement, incorporate, and reflect the:

  • National infrastructure that we now have in place for literacy and numeracy in New Zealand.
  • Framework outlined by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) for embedding literacy and numeracy
  • Structure of key unit standards and qualifications in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (ALNE)

What do you already know?

Any professional development pathway for embedding literacy and numeracy should take you through a series of modules covering the basics of this framework.
