If you google search “Pacific Literacy” or similar you don’t get much information. If you’re interested though, here are a couple of sites that I found with this kind of information. If you know of any great Pacifika-based literacy and numeracy initiatives please let me know in the comments. I’d be happy to highlight them here.
LN levels of Pacific Peoples in NZ
You can go here for information from Statistics New Zealand. Scroll down for information collected from the ALLS survey.
Data from the Ministry for Pacific Island Affairs regarding LN levels in the Pacific population in New Zealand is available here.
LN Initiatives for Pacific Learners
There’s an outline of initiatives in the school sector summarised by the Education Review Office available here.
In many styles of martial arts such as Karate, for example, achieving a dan rank means that, while one is no longer considered a beginner, one is not yet necessarily an expert. Rather it means that one has learned the basics.
It’s the same with literacy and numeracy professional development. Gaining your NCALNE (Voc) is the first step to show you’ve learned the basics and you’re on the way towards becoming a practitioner.
If you have already completed some of the requirements for the National Certificate in Adult Literacy & Numeracy Education – the NCALNE (Voc), but you haven’t actually got the qualification… then we can probably help you.
You might have already done Unit Standard 21204 with another provider or your employer. We can help you turn that into the NCALNE (Voc).
Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to complete your qualification and get the credentials that you deserve.
