Manager, Centre for Family Learning
City of Manukau Education Trust (COMET)
March 2010 - August 2011 (1 years)
The mission of the Centre for Family Learning is to increase opportunities for family-focused learning in Auckland. We do this through leadership, advocacy, analysis, coordination and brokering to identify and fill gaps in family learning services in the city, focusing especially on high-need, low-decile communities.
The Centre for Family Learning is one of three divisions of COMET, an educational charitable trust with links to Auckland Council.
We see family-focused or intergenerational learning as more than just parents or children improving their education – it is about learning that multiplies in families, so that the learning of each family member builds on and contributes to the learning of the others in the family, with measurable benefits for individual, family and community.
