The NZCALNE (Voc) Can Be A Tough Qualification
The New Zealand Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational) – or NZCALNE (Voc) for short – is a professional development programme and qualification available in New Zealand.
It’s an introduction to embedding literacy and numeracy into vocational education for trades teachers and any vocational education teacher.
Adult literacy and numeracy is a specialist area of knowledge, so it’s kinda tough when you’re getting started on the NZCALNE (Voc). However, the upside is that the skills that you learn really do have the ability to help your learners succeed.
If you can embed literacy and numeracy into your training you can help create the conditions for learning success.
I taught the NZCALNE (Voc) for more than 10 years. I know how hard it is for people – first of all to get their heads around the content, and also just to keep going and finish it.
That’s why you need to get your hands on the best resources to get you started on your NZCALNE study. And that’s why I wrote these three books.
