Better service at learning centres

Media Release

Better service at learning centres

Waitakere Libraries’ two stand-alone learning centres are better serviced with the appointment of two new full-time co-ordinators.

Both the Te Atatu Peninsula and Ranui learning centres will now be staffed Monday to Friday, 9am to 4.30pm.

To celebrate the extended hours and new staff, the Te Atatu Peninsula Learning Centre will be holding an open day on December 1 9am to 5pm, for the community to come and find out what learning centres can offer the community.

The centres can help with employment by helping people to search for jobs online, create a resume or set up a free email address.

Monthly beginners computer classes are offered free of charge for those new to computing.

The International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL) is an NZQA qualification offered in conjunction with Unitec Waitakere. Free to anyone, the course covers basic computing skills such as Word and Excel and involves a degree of self study.

Homework zones give children the opportunity for help with their homework after school in a safe, supervised environment.

School holiday activities include making posters using publishing programs and creating websites.

The learning centre is at 603 Te Atatu Road, near the library, community centre and Compass Point Café.
