Delivery

The Kokiri Centre is located at 51 Macandrew Road in Dunedin.

This programme is delivered through a combination of classroom learning and hands-on learning.

Facilitators use korero, presentations, visuals, study notes, reliable information from websites and other texts to support an interactive approach that delivers knowledge and supports the introduction and practice of skills and tikanga.

Practical skills are introduced by facilitator demonstration, group activities and practical tasks, and you will get the opportunity to undertake real-world activities.

Self-directed work involves investigation and completion of individual assignments for assessment.

A change for 2023 enrolments

When you apply to study with Otago Polytechnic in 2023, you will be enrolled with Te Pūkenga, the new national network of vocational and applied education in Aotearoa New Zealand. You will learn in the same way, in the same place, and with the same people. The great news is that this enables us to share skills and knowledge across a network of passionate education providers, to better help you succeed. Enrolling in programmes that start in 2023, means that you will graduate with a Te Pūkenga qualification.
