One of the best kept secrets in tertiary training in New Zealand is Pathways Awarua. It’s not really a secret, but up until recently, this has only been available to tutors and trainers.
From now, however, this great suite of teaching and learning tools is available to everyone. Well, to Kiwis anyway.
Check out the cool video above with Ben Mitchell (better known as TK from Shortland Street).
So, if you have older kids who need a hand with maths and reading, or you’re interested yourself, there is a fantastic resource available online here: https://pathwaysawarua.com.
The emphasis is on improving literacy and numeracy for adults including young adults. So think 16+ or use your judgement.
Content includes reading comprehension, vocabulary, maths, and most recently The Road Code.
It’s current, free (funded by the TEC) and your tax dollars. And it’s all NZ content and linked to post high school vocational training as well.
10 000 learners around the country already use it and now it’s open to anyone regardless of whether you’re in an official training course or not.
Disclaimer: I’ve written some of the content available on Pathways Awarua including the modules for the online version of the NCALNE (Voc) training and professional development.
