Praxis offers courses in Youth and Community work. The courses are recognised by NZQA, and are approved for student loans and allowance funding, through a direct relationship with TEC.
You can enter into the Praxis course through two streams.
All Praxis courses:
- Include a mix of learning in a classroom setting (at block courses and weekly group work) and practical work with a church or community organisation in your community.
- Are available as a ‘stand alone program’ and as the training component for internships which are offered by various partner groups.
Choosing the right course:
Praxis runs the first year of the National Diploma and the Level four Certificate concurrently.
Both first year Diploma students and Certificate students will attend many of the same lectures and have the same expectations regarding completion of the course.
However each will have different workbooks and will be assessed at the level of the course they have opted for.
If you are unsure which course is right for you contact a local praxis coordinator and we will guide you through the options.
Note: Unit Standard 468 (included in the Certificate) is assessed by a Skills Active registered assessor.
