Welcome to Te Hā o Mātauranga, Learning in Kaikōura

Te Hā o Mātauranga, Learning in Kaikōura is all about creating, promoting and encouraging learning opportunities in Kaikōura

Our dream is to create a “go to” place for Kaikōura residents who want to learn. A place that will promote opportunities, promote conversation around education and allow space for families to explore together how best to support their aspirations.

We help with employment

We are contracted to provide the Mayor's Taskforce for Jobs programme in Kaikōura. We support people to gain soft-skills needed for employment, gain micro-credentials, find employment, obtain and progress their driver's licence. We work with employers to find employees. We offer a free job listing website www.jobskaikoura.co.nz 



Working with Youth

We work with students enrolled on Te Kura (Correspondence School) to support them in their study. We work with youth to offer pathway support - helping figure out what their next steps are to enable them to do what they want. We offer opportunities that help explore identity - Ko wai au? Who am I? What matters to me? 

Youth Services

Young people work with community-based providers (us!) who give guidance, support and encouragement to help them find the education, training or work-based learning that works. Some young people will work with a Youth Service provider as part of getting financial support from Work and Income. This includes young people who are receiving Youth Payment, Young Parent Payment or are a young partner receiving a main Work and Income benefit. See more info here

Kaikōura Youth Council

We are proud to coordinate Kaikōura Youth Council - an inspiring and dedicated group of young people, working to make Kaikōura Youth be optimistic, confident and make valued contributions. Check out their website www.kaikourayouthcouncil.org.nz

Working with Community

We manage the Community Shed - similar to a Menzshed, Community Gardens and Kapai Puku food sharing stall.
