Let’s Live ! Let’s Learn !
Lifelong Learning is for everyone !


Learning does not stop with school and adulthood.

Learning continues throughout our lives in a huge variety of ways, places and roles – informally, as a member of a group or a weekly class, on a marae or in a workplace, as a mentor, tutor, guide or volunteer – or as a student or teacher in a formal education setting.

Wherever the learning takes place, whatever the subject or type of learning, what is important is the opening of minds, the interaction, the pathways to greater fulfilment and to success that are created.

Great educators and supportive learning organizations also assist in this success.

Learning’s A Lifelong Journey

We’ll help you travel its path!
