UCOL's National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational/ Workplace) comprises 41 credits.
In order to complete the requirements of the programme, students must be working as adult educators (lecturers, tutors or trainers) with a group of students or a range of individual students. The programme requires students to put their developing knowledge of literacy and numeracy skills development into practice with learners. This includes planning, delivery and evaluation of teaching/learning sessions.
Previous study at level 4 or above will be beneficial to student success.
It will make the process easier if you prepare the following before you
- National Student Number (NSN) (If you don't have a NSN, you may
request one from NZQA, or you can supply a verified copy of your birth certificate, passport or Whakapapa statement.)
- Evidence of your highest level of academic achievement (and evidence of prior learning, if applicable)
- Evidence that you meet the entry requirements of the programme
- Check if you're eligible for additional support or a
scholarship. If you're 19 years or younger, you may be eligible to enrol in one of
our free Youth Transition programmes.
Note that you will need to provide any verified documents in person, via post or email.
