Find out how you can upskill staff for free through our funded Workplace Literacy and Numeracy programmes

Literacy and numeracy skills can impact staff performance and business success.

We design and deliver workplace programmes customised to suit your team, using real examples from their work roles.

Literacy Aotearoa will develop and deliver quality programmes that will address your business priorities and meet your employees’ individual literacy, language and numeracy needs.

We will:

  • meet with your key personnel for a site visit
  • identify issues and conduct a needs analysis
  • develop individual programmes for each employee
  • deliver tuition on-site or at our provider’s premises, one-to-one and in small groups, at times that best suit you and your employees.

Employee Literacy is your business

Employees who enhance their literacy and numeracy skills have a positive impact on many factors in the workplace - including task accuracy, process compliance, better H&S understanding, staff positivity, staff retention, seeking promotion, or seeking further training and improvement.

Your employees need literacy and numeracy skills to lift your business and deal with new work practices and technologies and to support the changes the business makes.

You may not know that a problem exists... Literacy Aotearoa can make a difference.
