Adult Literacy and Numeracy Leadership Award
Each year, the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults presents its Adult Literacy and Numeracy Leadership Award.
Nominees must have made a notable contribution to the field of adult literacy and/or numeracy that has sector, regional or national significance. National significance here indicates significance for New Zealand, it does not mean it requires national cover.
Nominees should be educators - tutors, learning supporters, mentors, trainers, supervisors, managers or administrators - whose work benefits adult literacy and numeracy learners, specifically Māori, Pasifika and youth learners in New Zealand.
