Hosting or attending a course

Public courses
  • We can run free public courses if a community organisation is willing to act as the host —  providing the venue and a cup of tea for participants. There are no facilitator or resource costs; however, there must be a minimum of 15 people (NZ citizens and residents) and it must be open to the public. The free courses are the Making Sense of the Treaty 6 and 12 hour courses.
  • Venues must comply with OSH standards relating to the use
  • Individuals may register for a scheduled course (see Upcoming courses on the front page).
  • There will be a mileage charge for courses outside a certain radius of the facilitator's base.
  • There will be a charge to organisations if the target minimum number of people is not met, and in the case of late cancellations.
  • We can provide free courses within the Auckland region.
Other options
  • We can run courses for organisations that want professional development for staff. These are not open to the public.
  • Delivery costs for paid private courses include tutor preparation time and delivery, hand-outs
  • The minimum number of hours for a course is three; you can have two but you will be charged for three.
  • Delivery for paid private courses is at cost for ‘charitable’ organisations (as defined by IRD, Charities Services), state educational institutions, and informal groups (no legal status); at commercial rates for the private sector and government departments
  • Venues must comply with OSH standards relating to the use
 
The differences between private and public courses are outined below. These are guidelines rather than fixed rules — we are prepared to negotiate in particular situations. If you have questions or would like further clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
