Taranaki Community Education Committee Member

What is your connection to TCE?

I have been involved in the evolution of the organisation and am proud of the
renewed focus and purpose. Education helps bring communities together, to
share experiences and knowledge and the opportunity to consider different perspectives. 

Being part of Taranaki Community Education allows me to contribute to a purposeful organisation. It’s a way for me to show up and be of service. 

Share with us a bit about your background.

With a background in HR, in particular recruitment and training, I like to talk! But more importantly to hear others’ stories. I would describe myself as an extroverted introvert.

As an advocate, what courses have you done?

Our tutors are not only subject knowledge experts, they are able to adapt and tailor the course to match participants expectations and level, ensuring content is always relevant and helpful.

I have participated in some short courses with TCE, including an introduction to learning Te Reo Māori with Keri, which required some unlearning too! But, I appreciated her patience and sense of humour. Although a beginner, having the opportunity to learn and speak Te Reo Māori has been a significant step in my learning journey of Te Ao Māori.


Join the waiting list for this course. We'll let you know when it is next available.
