Welcome to the New Zealand Literacy Association. We are an association consisting of regional councils which encourage membership of teachers, parents, and literacy educators.
From our Executive through to our Regional Councils we are all volunteers committed to the development of Literacy in its many forms.
We seek to support educators to improve their understanding of Literacy, whether at preschool through to adults. We look to provide professional development for all that are interested as well as many other services to our regions.
Our partnerships with Australia and Oceania are also key to us as we see our role as global citizens.
Welcome to our website, our 2-5 year plan is to be a central hub where all educators know that they can come to for a wide ranging resource base.
