Organisational Development & Volunteers - Bridging the resource gap
Training at our Partner Schools is made possible by other activities essential for the efficient functioning of a tertiary learning centre: HR, ESOL, governance, IT, infrastructure, facilities management, and strategic planning.
Our Organisational Development Venture works alongside Partner Schools to increase capacity and enhance the quality of these areas as well as the training.
Many skilled Kiwis play a crucial part in this: Through our International Volunteering Programme they're the ones who provide the specialist support and capacity building to Partner Schools. Between October 2014 and September 2016 volunteers gave over 500 days of professional expertise to our partners. Volunteers put friendship with the Partner School first, and aim to complement the skills of the staff. The starting points are listening, humility, grace and prayer. Volunteers are fully self-funded, so there is no financial burden on the Partner School.
Skilled Kiwis volunteer with our partners through both Leadership Development and Langham Partnership NZ.
