Goodbye ALPA – I’ve Joined the NZATD


Goodby ALPA.jpg

Last year saw the demise of the Adult Literacy Practitioners Association (ALPA).

This means that people like me who occupy this obscure niche of education don’t actually have a professional body to belong to.

This doesn’t bother me. But I’ve decided to join the New Zealand Association for Training and Development (NZATD).

I think it’s much better to situate literacy and numeracy professional development in the larger universe of teaching and training. It can be a bit isolating otherwise…

Anyone have any experience with these guys? Let me know your thoughts or recommendations.

  1. Please let us know how you find the NZATD. Really interested to know how they might support us. And… are they ready for us!

  2. Hi Graeme,

    Trust you are well and I remember being a student of yours way back in 2007.

    I too deliver Ncalne Voc and wonder if you might have an Exemplar of Unit Standard 9685.
    Hoping you could help me please.

    Nga mihi
    Kind Regards
    Linda
