Our Programmes

Get the help you need to take charge of your life by improving your reading, writing and maths.
We're committed to helping you in the way that suits you best - and what's more our classes are free for eligible learners.

Here are our current core programmes. If you are interested in finding out more about them, or want to get enrolled in a class, please contact your local Literacy Aotearoa site: Where to Find Us

Many programmes run over 10 weeks during our Terms, plus we offer more intense versions and/or shorter length programmes in some areas. We adapt and alter our programmes for communities and workplaces - and we have other programmes available in some regions. In some cases we offer Unit Standards and we may be able to help you complete NCEA if you haven't yet. Some online programmes are available and we are developing more all the time.

So please get in contact to find out what learning opportunities are coming up in your town. Remember we have approximately 40 sites around Aotearoa - there is a good chance a free programme suitable for you is happening in your area soon.
