Changing Skills for a Changing World: Recommendations for Adult Literacy Policy in Aotearoa/New Zealand

This report was researched and written under the sponsorship of the Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy. It summarises major issues facing New Zealand’s modern adult literacy movement and places it in the context of the rapidly changing skill demands of the 21st Century. In addition to an overview of the current adult literacy system and four new case studies, the pages that follow include recommendations for a long-term, comprehensive, co-ordinated adult literacy strategy – an overdue necessity in light of recent economic and technological changes.
