The TEC released the latest version of their literacy and numeracy strategy the other day. I’ve pasted in the info and links from their website below. From my side, the following things stand out:
- The TEC remains committed to strengthening the literacy and numeracy skills of New Zealanders.
- The NCALNE (Voc) remains the baseline qualification for foundation tutors working in this space.
- We might see the development of a cross-government national publicity campaign to reduce stigma around low literacy and numeracy skills, and demystify and promote potential solutions to improving personal literacy and numeracy.
Literacy and Numeracy Implementation Strategy 2015–2019
The Tertiary Education Commission has published its Literacy and Numeracy Implementation Strategy 2015–2019.
The Strategy will guide our work in adult literacy and numeracy. It sets out how we will engage with the tertiary sector, with employers and across government from 2015 to 2019 to lift literacy and numeracy skills.
The Strategy has been developed following consultation with stakeholders in the tertiary sector and with employers.
