Resources on Maori Literacy and Numeracy Initiatives


I’m conscious that I need to update ALEC’s Study Guide with more information around Māori literacy and numeracy initiatives. I’ve started gathering up some newer links and info. Here’s a start:

Improving Literacy and Numeracy for the Māori Workforce

The same link takes you to four case studies. The following info is pasted in from the Te Puni Kokiri link above.

1. The Tūwharetoa Adult Literacy Initiative is coordinated by the Tūwharetoa Māori Trust Board, and is provided by Literacy Aotearoa. This programme provides literacy and numeracy support to learners in the Taupō region, in order to facilitate employment or further training. The case study summary can be read here.

3. Whakatō te Mātauranga is coordinated by the Waikaremoana Māori Trust Board. The programme adopts a multi- pronged approach to learning – integrating life skills with the academic imperatives of NCEA level 1. The programme is normally one year full-time, although learners can stay for two to three years. The case study summary can be read here.

4. TeamWorks is an on-site programme at Downer EDI Works and is delivered by an external provider, The Learning Wave. The programme comprises eight modules focusing on: leadership; communication skills; problem-solving; task planning; work roles; and team work. There are two, two day courses, with six weeks coaching and individual project work in between. The case study summary can be read here.
