Make A Pledge For Adult Learners Week

Make A Pledge For Adult Learners Week


Next week (8 – 14 September) is Adult Learners Week, and NorthTec is encouraging the community to join in by making a pledge to learn.

Adults all over Northland are being encouraged to make a pledge, whether it’s about learning a new language, taking an adult education course or joining in with a community project. It could be as simple as spending more time reading to younger family members, and helping them to learn.

NorthTec is offering the chance for pledgers to win $100 worth of Whitcoulls vouchers, simply by visiting NorthTec’s Facebook page and sharing details of their pledge.

There will be an Adult Learners Week display at NorthTec’s Raumanga campus library and at Forum North in Whangarei, encouraging people to join in.

NorthTec tutors have also nominated their most inspiring adult learners, who will be presented with certificates and a small prize to mark the occasion. Many of these are people who are combining study with significant family and community commitments, providing inspiration and encouragement to others.

Adult Learners Week is also a great time to sign up for a NorthTec ACE (Adult Community Education) course. These are run from NorthTec campuses and learning centres and also at community-based venues, at locations from Wellsford through to Rāwene and Kaitaia. Some programmes are fees-free. Subjects include community computing, yoga and horticulture and sustainable living.

Or why not plan ahead and start thinking about studying in 2015, whether it’s full-time, part-time or distance learning? NorthTec has a wide range of programmes for anyone aged over 18, from foundation studies to help you get back in the classroom, to diplomas and degrees. For more information go to www.northtec.ac.nz, or phone 0800 162 100.

NorthTec is the Tai Tokerau (Northland) region's largest provider of tertiary education, with campuses and learning centres in Whangarei, Kerikeri, Rāwene, Kaikohe and Kaitaia. NorthTec also has over 60 community-based delivery points from Coatesville in rural Rodney to Ngataki in the Far North.
