Adults participate in literacy and language development in a range of learning environments.

These environments may include:

  • individual one-on-one learning with a home tutor
  • community-based classes (usually part-time, often evening classes) held, for example, in a private home, on a marae, or in a school or community centre
  • adult literacy courses (full- or part-time) in an adult literacy centre, such as a polytechnic, wānanga or community college
  • prison literacy classes
  • workplace literacy programmes
  • ESOL classes that may be part-time or full-time, usually in high school adult education centres, private training establishments or polytechnics, or
  • foundation learning programmes, such as those offered at a polytechnic or private training establishment.
