Our Vision and Ethos

Community Colleges New Zealand strives to maintain an environment where everyone feels valued for who they are and
where individual values, beliefs & cultures are respected & celebrated.  Each of us has something we can learn from others
and something that we can share so that others may learn.

Our Vision

education and related community areas or activities.

Our Mission

achieve the highest potential and success for all learners.

Our Values

The qualities on which ComCol depends and
must model, explore and encourage:

Respect. Integrity. Responsibility.

Our Kinesthetic Ethos    

We embrace the vision of a kinesthetic learning community,
in which:  

  • there is a high level of physical activity & practical training
  • students experience training in workplace conditions
  • tutors facilitate learning rather than teach
  • students' existing skills are recognised & valued
  • individuals' learning preferences are respected
  • positive encouragement, coaching & feedback is common
  • staff and students work together to create the learning environment
  • there is a positive expectation of success for everyone
