At NZALI, we view the TEC Employer-Led Workplace Literacy and Numeracy Fund (E-LWLNF) as an excellent initiative, offering a win-win-win for New Zealand workers, New Zealand businesses and organisations, and for New Zealand itself. The fund allows registered training providers such as NZALI to work with New Zealand businesses to improve employee literacy and numeracy, which can lead to increased productivity, reduced wastage, increased employee capability, and increased staff loyalty. Our training delivery times are flexible and are designed to complement your company’s work schedules.
We customise training programmes to address companies’ specific and immediate needs and embed literacy and numeracy skills within our programmes. Although the E-LWLNF is designed to be used specifically to train New Zealand citizens and residents with basic literacy and numeracy skills, NZALI recognises that many employers also have other employees with similar needs, and we also recognise that training can be more effective if these employees’ immediate managers and supervisors are also captured within training programmes. Therefore, NZALI cross-subsidises training of these other cohorts at our own expense, within the programmes, to maximise the chances of effective outcomes.
