E-learning opportunities

Te Pou offers a range of e-learning courses to increase the skills and knowledge of people working in the mental health, addiction and disability sectors.

E-learning is self-directed learning that ensures everyone receives consistent, high quality learning experiences. It gives you the opportunity to complete relevant training online on a PC, laptop or tablet at your own pace and at a time that suits you.

E-learning can be engaging and informative, using a mix of short videos, narration, images, diagrams and quizzes to increase your understanding. Modules can be completed in one sitting or you can pause and return to a module – you control the pace.

These e-learning courses are all available at no charge.
