Job Posting – Literacy and Numeracy Facilitator


TLW-logo-CMYK

Occasionally, I post or repost jobs relating to the adult literacy and numeracy education sector. Here’s a good one.

My friends at The Learning Wave are looking for LN Facilitators. They’re a great bunch to work for. I know as I’ve worked with them on the professional development side of things for just a little under 10 years.

If you’re a graduate of the NCALNE (Voc) or NZCALNE (Voc) and you’re looking for interesting work that combines adult literacy and numeracy with business outcomes then you should apply.

The Learning Wave have a very open mind about the location of facilitators and ways of engaging with them… What they’re after is trainers with the “X” factor. I know that applies to many of our graduates.

Because of the growth that they have forecasted, they may also be interested in people working as associates in other major facets such as leadership, health and safety leadership or learning design.

There’s a generic email address for enquiries here: roles@thelearningwave.com if you want to send a CV or bio and areas of interest.

The full job ad is here on Seek. And I’ve pasted it in below as well.


The Learning Wave are seeking people who have:

  • the empathy and patience required to work with diverse groups of learners within a team committed to the delivery of high-quality personal and business learning outcomes
  • relevant and engaging front-line, adult learning delivery skills and experience
  • the ability to support learners on a journey that is linked to business outcomes
  • a qualification such as the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy or its equivalent.

You will be working as an associate of The Learning Wave to deliver integrated workplace literacy and numeracy programmes to a number of our business clients.

You will deliver learning programmes on-site to small groups (typically 6-9 learners). The programmes are tailored to meet the specific business requirements of our clients and their employees. You will have varied hours and work locations that will be throughout New Zealand, depending on the client’s programme and worksites.

You need to have a good understanding and experience of facilitating adult literacy and numeracy programmes in workplaces. You must be eligible to work in NZ to apply for this role. If you’re the right person, we can discuss whether this is a contractor or full-time role.

About The Learning Wave:

The Learning Wave is one of the largest government-funded workplace literacy and numeracy providers in New Zealand. Operating since 2005, we have worked with many organisations throughout New Zealand to integrate workplace literacy and numeracy skills into organisational change programmes. We have some exciting opportunities to grow our business in 2018 and need to make sure we have the right team of facilitators who can deliver to our clients.

Please send your covering letter and CV by Monday 16th October 2017.

In-depth Literacy and Numeracy Demands of Jobs: Workbase Resources


TD1

This work was done before the Learning Progressions became the underpinning framework for assessing and teaching literacy and numeracy in New Zealand, but there are pages and pages of analysis on literacy and numeracy skills and tasks relating to different jobs. I’ve pasted in screenshots from the resource that looks at the job of a truck driver.

TD2

These job profiles mostly just give you lists of things that people have to do to do the work, but without any indication of the levels of difficulty attached to these kinds of actions. However, there is still some really great information here if you look at it with your Learning Progressions-tinted glasses on and realise that most of it probably happens around steps 4, 5, and 6.

TD3

If you needed to you could easily map the breakdown of skills and tasks to the learning progressions and work out what steps things are likely to happen at.

TD4

One of the really nice things is that this system includes information about the critical thinking skills required in the job – something that is missing from the Learning Progressions, at least in explicit terms.

TD5

  • Apprentice Chef
  • Automotive Electrician
  • Automotive Heavy Engineer
  • Automotive Light Vehicle Trades
  • Automotive Light Vehicle Specialist Technician
