Tai Poutini Polytechnic Personal Presentation Course

Tai Poutini Polytechnic Personal Presentation Course

21 July 2014

A community-focused course at Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP) is helping local students gain confidence in their future.

TPP recently ran a Personal Presentation course aimed at developing the confidence and communication skills of students. The course was developed by TPP staff working with the community to address local needs.

The five-day course covered: personal presentation, communication skills and confidence, computers and beauty. All of the students involved received a certificate of participation and feedback has been positive.

Student Melissa Costello is thinking about going on to further study, through the full-time Hair, Beauty and Grooming programme, as a result of the course. “I didn’t have much confidence before I did the course but this course helped me so much,” she says.

Vanora Dell, who also took part in the course, says it inspired her to look further into beauty and learn about skin types. “I was thrilled when I heard about the course and thoroughly enjoyed it,” she says.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
