Embedding literacy and numeracy with the NZ Department of Corrections staff


03 Educators heart disruption

This is a summary of all of the video content to date that highlights some of our best work with the Department of Corrections.

The instructors in the various video clips have all undertaken the National Certificate in Adult Literacy & Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace).

This qualification, which we abbreviate to the NCALNE (Voc), teaches a system for embedding literacy and numeracy explicitly into the content and context of trades and vocational training as well as other areas.
