Seeing is believing. Its an old adage and one that we believe in. Papa Taiao Earthcare immerses students in their environment. we enable students to see and monitor the state of their environment, show them how it could be and help them learn skills of sustainability and restoration.

EARTHCARE ACADEMIES

Trades Academies aim to get young New Zealanders engaged in education and equip tomorrow’s workforce with relevant skills by linking with wider industry training system.” 

THE EARTHCARE ACADEMIES ARE SECONDARY-TERTIARY PARTNERSHIPS BETWEEN PAPA TAIAO AND THE SCHOOL.

 

The academies are staffed according to the school's and student's needs. Papa Taiao staff are on-site in the school (or where the course is being delivered) for one day a week delivering the skills training. Papa Taiao staff collaborate with the school around numeracy and literacy to enable students to achieve NCEA.

Our learning programmes adopt the enterprise inquiry process and integrate curricula with the goal of producing action competent and enterprising learners who embrace complexity and take a systems approach to their actions and behaviours.
