Work alongside the Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute to deliver relevant training programmes that meet the needs of Cook Islands industry.

In this rewarding assignment, you will assist staff to carry out a training needs analysis across the islands and research available programmes to meet any identified needs. You will work collaboratively to produce contextually relevant resources and assessment materials that are tailored to the local environment. 

With a dual focus, you will also work closely with institute staff to achieve ‘consent to assess’ training programmes. Your support in this area will help the institute move away from reliance on New Zealand-based organisations for assessment towards sustainable, cost-effective courses and assessments that are uniquely Cook Islands.

This assignment offers an exciting opportunity to support quality, localised tertiary education and enable a brighter future for young Cook Islanders.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

  • Ability to write educational programme approval applications, curriculum documents and tutor and student resources
  • Understanding of the NZQA qualifications framework and City and Guilds
  • An understanding of effective teaching and learning practices
  • Ability to develop and review policies and procedures
