These courses are funded by the TEC (Tertiary Education Commission) to address students' literacy, numeracy and wellbeing needs. Attendance of at least 80% of classes is required. We also aim to help you learn other valuable and interesting skills, making your learning experience enjoyable and engaging.

The government’s priorities for Adult Community Education (ACE) are to encourage new learners, particularly Māori, Pacific Islanders, and those who feel their initial education was not successful, to re-engage with their learning and enhance their numeracy and literacy skills.

The minimum age requirement is 16 years old.

**Please be advised:** All individuals aged 16 years must be accompanied by an enrolled adult.

Home-schooled and alternative education students are encouraged to contact us directly at [email protected], as we may consider acceptance for students aged 15 years.
