Get help with reading, writing, maths and computers
Learn what you need
We understand that everybody needs to learn different things, and that everybody learns in different ways.
We can support you to:
- Learn to read magazines, menus, blogs and books
- Calculate your weekly budget
- Better support your children as they grow up
- Pass a course or apprenticeship you’re working towards
- Feel more confident using computers
- Improve your CV and interviewing skills to get a good job.
Flexible and personalised learning
Learning with us is varied, fun, and supportive. We're not like school because you get to choose what you learn and when you learn. We have several different ways of learning.
Our computer apps
Our computer apps make it fun and easy to learn. Nobody will rush you and our tutors will help you when you get stuck.
You can always talk to your tutor about your progress. They will spend time with you on areas where you would like extra support.
Small group work
Small groups of two to seven are a fun and social way to learn. You’ll learn lots from others, and you might make a good mate along the way.
Learning at home
If you want, your tutor can set you up to learn at home. You can use our computer apps at home and take away other learning resources.
What to expect when you start with us
In your first meeting, our Community Coordinator will talk to you about your background, your education and what you want help with. Feel free to bring someone with you to this meeting.
After your first meeting, you can then decide whether you would like our support. At your second meeting, a tutor will give you a quick reading and maths assessment to figure out your skills. We'll use this to decide the best way to support you.
Doesn't cost you a cent
That’s right –our services almost always cost you nothing. You need to meet these conditions:
- You have low literacy or numeracy skills
- You're over 16 years old
- You're a New Zealand citizen or resident
- You're not in school or another educational institute.
We are funded by government and through the generosity of our supporters and sponsors.
