National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults

The National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults is a key part of the national infrastructure to strengthen the literacy and numeracy skills of adult learners in New Zealand. The Centre was established in 2009 through a contract with the Tertiary Education Commission and facilitates collaborations with stakeholders nationally and internationally. It is hosted by the Faculty of Education and works in partnership with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, bringing together specialist skills in Māori pedagogy with literacy and numeracy expertise. The Centre undertakes research, analyses policy and promotes evidence-based professional learning which equips educators to identify literacy and numeracy needs and demands and supports adult learning in a range of contexts, especially with the Tertiary Education priority groups of Māori, Pasifika and youth.
