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 and cultures are respected

that others may learn.

Our Vision
Leaders in Learning - to provide leadership in tertiary
education and related community areas. 

Our Mission

the highest potential and success for all learners.

Our Values

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 and practical training

- Students experience training in workplace conditions

- Tutors facilitate learning rather than teach

- Students' existing skills are recognised and valued

- Individuals' learning preferences are respected

- Positive encouragement, coaching and feedback is common

- Staff and students work together to create the
   learning
 environment

- There is a positive expectation of success for everyone
