Literacy and Numeracy

Literacy and Numeracy

VisionWest Training Centre transforms lives by assisting individuals to learn and lay foundations for the future.


The Foundation Literacy and Numeracy Programme consists of 100-200 hours of classroom study and is designed to enable individuals to be more successful in gaining employment, further studies and/or pursuing the life they want. This course does not contribute towards a National Certificate. It is an individualised self-paced programme that directly addresses student’s specific needs in:

  • Reading and Comprehension
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Writing
  • Spelling, Grammar, & Punctuation
  • Vocabulary
  • Numeracy

The programme also caters to ESOL students from Foundation Entry to Entry Level 2. The ESOL Programme has a strong oral literacy (speaking and listening) component and offers English grammar from Level 1 onwards. ILN courses are run by tutors who coordinate student programs and provide support with transition into further education and/or employment.

To enrol in ILN, students must be over 18 years, have low qualifications and lack literacy and/or numeracy credits at NCEA Level 1. For more information about class times and vacancies, please contact us.
