The vision of the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults (National Centre) is “to enhance the lives of New Zealanders through improved literacy and numeracy outcomes for adults.” The Centre’s aim is to build the capacity and capability of the tertiary sector through strategic partnerships and collaborations. In 2010, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi and the National Centre, formalised their partnership and have adopted an innovative approach to adult literacy and numeracy work. This presentation will focus on two key elements of the Centre’s work – pedagogy and pedagogical intervention. Pedagogy is aimed at influencing tutors, pouako, teachers, kaiako and educators and asking them to consider a more frontline responsibility for student’s learning. This pedagogical intervention has to enhance achievement levels in learning and workplace settings. Ultimately, there must be a transformational shift at the iwi, hapu, whānau and community level, if this work is to make a significant difference to peoples’ lives and life chances. His presentation has been split into five clips.
