Introduction

Greetings and a warm welcome to the 2010 Study Guide... This Study Guide, combined with the Assessment Guide and companion readings, templates, and web-based materials, will provide you with the guidance, support, and information you need to complete the NCALNE (Vocational).

What do I need to know?

  • You should already know that you’ve enrolled in the 40-credit National Certificate in Adult Literacy Education (Vocational Tutor/Lecturer or Workplace Trainer).
  • You may know that Unit Standard 21204 (Develop adult learners’ literacy and numeracy skills within a training or education programme) is central to this course and makes up 30 of the total 40 credits. We have embedded two additional units to make up the balance. These are Unit Standard 9685 (Write an analytical report) and Unit Standard 21196 (Design literacy skills development for an individual learner).
  • You may not know that you’ll cover a wide range of content areas and skills and that you will your ability to embed literacy and numeracy into your context. There are seven broad areas that we’ll cover. Each of these areas relates to one assessment task and one element from 21204. They are:
  1. The New Zealand context.
  2. Māori literacy and numeracy.
  3. Mapping and task analysis: Know the demands.
  4. Diagnostic assessment: Know the learner.
  5. Embedding literacy and numeracy: Know what to do.
  6. Assessing learning progress.
  7. Evaluating embedded literacy and numeracy.

 

Think of the Study and Assessment Guides as your road maps to the course. We just call it the NCALNE (Voc) for short, by the way... From here on we’ll abbreviate literacy and numeracy to LN in many places to keep things simple. The main point of the course is to focus you on embedding numeracy and literacy purposefully, systematically, and self consciously. This is different to doing it automatically and intuitively which is what you may have been doing up to now in any case.
