Central Leader - - News -

Applications for two fund­ing grants are open to adult and com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tors seek­ing help for train­ing and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment.

The Small Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment grant is for pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment and the In­no­va­tion Pro­fes­sional grant is aimed at de­vel­op­ing and putting in place pro­fes­sional strate­gies.

Adult and Com­mu­nity Ed­u­ca­tion, which is of­fer­ing the grants, pro­vides com­mu­ni­ty­based learn­ing for adults that can take place any­where there is a need – on a marae, in a pad­dock or for­est, in a com­mu­nity cen­tre, li­brary or fam­ily kitchen.

It in­cludes English lan­guage and so­cial sup­port pro­grammes, lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy, Maori or Pa­cific lan­guage and cul­ture, com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment and ed­u­ca­tion for so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal jus­tice.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms and fund­ing guide­lines are avail­able at www. or by email­ing pdgrants@
