Low levels of literacy and numeracy can easily go unnoticed and undiagnosed in the workplace. Resulting issues such as increased accident rates, higher than average error rates, or a lower than expected uptake in training, can all slow your business down. Providing training that lifts your employees' basic skills benefits your business.

Wilkinson's Workplace Literacy Services has secured government funding via the Tertiary Education Commission to implement Workplace Literacy Programmes in a limited number of New Zealand businesses in 2013. This means you could have a Workplace Literacy Programme running in your business at no cost to you!
"We have been very impressed with the quality of the teaching provided by Wilkinson's and have found the tutors to be professional, approachable and flexible. We believe that the programme has encouraged our staff to participate more in the workplace, as well as helping them to develop better work skills."
"Wilkinson's have made it very easy for me to track my staff progress and have input on areas I would like to see developed during lessons. They have worked around the staff's ever changing hours to ensure no interruption to the running of our factory which has been greatly appreciated."
"Within a month of beginning the programme, there was a marked change in the behaviour of the learners. Each of them made more of an attempt to speak English throughout the work day, not only with each other, but also communicating with English speaking co-workers."
