Skills Highway ACE Conference Presentation 2017Dr Nicky Murray is the programme manager for the Skills Highway workplace literacy and numeracy programme, which is funded by the Tertiary Education Commission and based at the Industry Training Federation. She has been involved in industry training, workplace learning, and adult literacy and numeracy for a number of years. Nicky is a strong proponent of lifelong learning, having begun her under and post-graduate studies later in life. She is passionate about the contribution that good literacy and numeracy outcomes make to a skilled and productive New Zealand.

Anne works as a researcher and evaluator. She has an interest in adult learning and the impact it has on those who participate in programmes. She has conducted a number of research projects with learners in workplace, community and tertiary education settings.

In their workshop, Nicky and Anne explored what PIAAC tells us about adult Literacy and Numeracy skills in New Zealand. They looked at workplaces as a vital part of our communities and the role of community provision in connecting to workplaces, employers and adult LN learners. They also examined how change can be maintained after workplace LN programmes end and how this can be supported and enhanced by community provision.

Surviving and thriving in a climate of changeAfter 41 years in primary, secondary and adult education, Colin recently entered retirement and in this workshop, brings together some of his experiences during what has been a testing time in non-formal tertiary education.

Offered the choice between taking redundancy from Wellington High School when funding was cut in 2009, or facing the challenge of rescuing a programme possibly doomed to failure, he took on the task and has led the programme from strength to strength over the last eight years.

In this practical workshop Colin will look at how the CEC not only survived the cuts but thrived in a continually challenging environment. He will offer many useful ideas and suggestions, including branding and marketing, programming, managing costs and more.
