- Targeting learners whose initial learning was not successful
- Raising foundation skills
- Strengthening social cohesion.
Tararua REAP actively assesses the educational, economic and social needs of the Tararua district. We work hard to meet those needs by developing programmes and activities that will address the underlying barriers that hinder people from effectively contributing to our communities.
It’s all about participation - giving people the skills to get involved and take an active part in the future of our region. Needs assessment is ongoing, it happens in a variety of contexts, personal contact, surveys, evaluations of programmes, community forums and our interaction with our education and social service partners throughout the region.
Tararua REAP’s core ACE Programmes are funded by the Tertiary Education Commission.
