Literacy & Numeracy Project

Learners in beginner, intermediate and advanced literacy and numeracy classes not only gain confidence and skill in reading, writing and numeracy, but their lives are almost always transformed.

“I can understand the numbers on the microwave and washing machine for the first time – that makes me feel much more independent,” says one participant. “I have more words to express what I think and feel much more confident. I think I’ve really come out of my shell,” says another.

All sessions are held at The Gate and include computer and paper-based reading materials. No group exceeds five students and where necessary, students are taught on one-to-one basis.

“I can now read newspapers, as well as magazines and books,” says one participant.
