How to enrol
You need to be a NZ resident over the age of 16. You also need to provide to us a form of identification for example: Passport, Birth Certificate, or Drivers License.
If you believe you have difficulty with reading, writing or maths, we can help you.
You will need to contact us. We will make a time for you to meet with either our Administrator, Education Co-ordinator or a Literacy Coach for an interview.
The purpose of the interview is to see how best we can help you and agree on a training plan and date to get you started.
Our programmes are free and are therefore very popular. We are limited to the number of people we can accept on any given programme. If you miss out on enrolling on a programme this time round, you will go straight onto our waiting list. We will often try to get you enrolled on the next available programme.
Businesses and Employees
If you consider that you or your employees need help with reading, writing, speaking, maths, numbers, computers, drivers license, health and safety compliance or simply want to understand the work that you do better, then talk to us in the first instance.
We have helped hundreds of businesses and employees over the last 40 years to become more confident, competent and productive in the workplace. With the new Health and Safety laws that have recently come into effect, understanding and interpreting the importance of health and safety, to understanding the mechanics of communicating more effectively in the workplace has become essential for both employers and employees.
We can design a specific programme to suit each employer's situation.
