Adult Literacy & Numeracy Services (ALNS) helps people develop their English literacy and numeracy (L&N) skills. This can require different help for different students because literacy and numeracy covers many things. Literacy can involve reading, writing, spelling, comprehension, speaking, using technology, completing forms. Numeracy includes learning maths language so as to read, speak, write and calculate. Both fields tend to require a certain level of technical/digital ability, too.
ALNS helps small groups and individuals build L&N skills in a customised way. It aims to support anyone who wants to learn – school or university students or leavers; working, stay-at-home or unemployed adults; business owners; and retirees. Learners can be native to English or new to the language. People decide to build their literacy & numeracy skills for all sorts of reasons.
ALNS sees a lot of dyslexic students. Many come believing they can’t achieve their goals. Dyslexia presents in different ways but doesn’t mean a person can’t learn. Lots of great achievers have dyslexia. They just need to find the way they learn and do things best.
Call, email or sms ALNS to explore your learning.
ALNS’ founder, Fran Davidson, has solid experience in teaching, learning, mentoring and studying. This helps her support others explore concepts, complete assessments or build their abilities. ALNS offers relaxed, professional and personalised mentoring based upon the learner’s needs. Before we start, we meet to discuss all of this.
Fran also helps organisations build their employees’ L&N skills for work. Depending on the brief, face-to-face, distance and online mentoring is available. Location needn’t stop anyone from developing. Please explore the other pages on this site to learn more about this.
Adult Literacy & Numeracy Services also buddies with L&N teachers. It offers confidential, judgment-free help in brainstorming ideas; developing learning plans or resources; and meeting admin requirements. Continue reading about ALNS’ teacher support service.
