People Potential has won the best Independent Tertiary Education Providers award, beating almost 200 similar institutions throughout New Zealand for the top accolade. The Independent Tertiary Education New Zealand (ITENZ) award was presented in Hamilton and recognises People Potential as providing the highest quality education across a number of courses. NZQA said People Potential's courses have led to considerable success for Māori and Pasifika learners, both academically and at work. "It has strong relationships with stakeholders, employers and communities, has initiated collaborative industry groups, and mentored and supported other providers to ensure that the local community need for tertiary education is met," NZQA said.
YG Whangarei Wananga
Our amazing students and staff visited the Ngati Wai marae in Ngaiotonga, Whangaruru, for a 3-day wananga. The purpose of our outing was to motivate, inspire and strengthen our learners' cultural identity. We also participated in a big marae clean-up as part of our community project. The wananga was inspirational because it provided opportunities for all students and staff to learn, work together and complete practical work for their assessments.
Street Clean March 2018
On the 23rd March 2018, all five of the People Potential Campuses hit the streets to pick up rubbish and give back to our wonderful community. People Potential is continually looking for ways to ensure their local community streets are clean and our staff and students learn the importance of caring for the earth. Massive thanks to everyone who was involved in the street clean day - keep being a tidy kiwi!
Youth Camp 2017
In June 2017, 46 People Potential Youth Guarantee students from the Whangarei, Dargaville and Kaikohe campuses visited Rotorua for a 4 day camp. The group stayed at Apumoana Marae and filled their days with some of Rotorua's most exciting activities, which included Luge rides, the sky swing, zorbing, Whakarewarewa Village tour and relaxed at Rotorua's Polynesian Spa Pools. Both Students and Staff really enjoyed their time away. For some students, this was there first time traveling further than Auckland so it was definitely a trip to be remembered.
