Literacy Aotearoa defines ‘literacy’ as the sum of an individual’s ability to listen, speak, read, write, numerate and think critically, and is interwoven with knowledge of social and cultural practices. The Tertiary Education Strategy 2014 – 2019 recognises that basic skills in literacy, language and numeracy are essential to participate fully in the modern world, and are a priority across the education system.
Literacy Aotearoa appreciates the extent of consultation undertaken by TEC, and take this time to reiterate thanks to TEC personnel. Special thanks to David Do for the time provided in attending the National Planning Hui of Literacy Aotearoa, to discuss the latest version of the refreshed strategy and accept the feedback from the membership.
