Course Description

Ako Ngātahi (Learning Together) is our online interactive training series to learn together from the comfort of your own home.  Your host will interview our guest expert and then will give you the opportunity to ask your own questions. 

Caregivers love these workshops because they are short, engaging, and cover 12 different topics every year (one per month). 

You can sign up for a one-off workshop, or attend every month to build up your knowledge throughout the year!

*NOTE: If you want to attend every month, you will need to reregister every month.

What caregivers have to say…

Impressed with the delivery, facilitation, timeframe, content. Looking forward to attending more.

I learnt about co-regulating a child and helping them express their feelings through words and not negative behaviors.

Really appreciate knowing we aren’t the only ones in this ship sailing along the rough seas sometimes!

Please Note

Our training delivery is focused during terms 2 and 3, with reduced workshops during terms 1 and 4, as we know this is the busiest time of year for caregivers.  We also do not facilitate training during the school holidays. Therefore, during certain periods of the year we have limited courses available on our training calendar.

If you are interested in participating in a training that you cannot see available on our training calendar, please get in touch with our Training Coordinator, Dagmar, by emailing her HERE.
