Mission Statement

Literacy Aotearoa is established to develop, promote and deliver accessible, quality literacy services designed to ensure the peoples of Aotearoa are critically literate and able to realise their full social, cultural and economic potential.

Scheme Philosophy (Kaupapa)

Literacy Aotearoa will honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi by operating in accordance with Tino Rangatiratanga and guided by Manaaki Tangata.

Southern Literacy Aotearoa believes that adults, who wish to improve their basic literacy skills, should be encouraged to do so in an environment that encourages and supports.

This is done by working in a student centred manner where the student is encouraged to set and meet their own goals toward being more independent and more able to meet the everyday literacy challenges that they confront.

We work in a partnership that respects each other's different cultural and personal values.
