Working or doing business in English involves literacy & numeracy skills. Every industry and job has its own language, processes and skillsets. New roles can need us to discover new ways to speak, write or work in teams. With over 30 years’ experience in marketing, strategy, admin and self-employment, ALNS helps people do this.
You can achieve as a job seeker, student, recruit, employee, manager or business owner. Having decided to grow vocationally, it’s ‘just’ a matter of doing the work. Sessions in literacy & numeracy for work are best when based upon real tasks. This ensures that your learning is tailored to your industry and job.
Working with real scenarios, ALNS reinforces learning. Every student and employer has specific needs and objectives. These are identified at our first session and confirmed before sessions start. ALNS can work with you on short-, medium- or long-term programs.
