Our Teaching Philosophy

“Ako”, in Te Reo Māori, means both to learn and to teach. This expresses the essence of TCEG’s philosophy of learning and teaching. Good learning takes place when an effective partnership is created between learners and lecturers.

Learners and lecturers have responsibilities to each other as well as to themselves. TCEG is committed to offering high quality, lifelong learning along with flexible and innovative delivery that respects diversity and promotes excellence.

Our Quality Assurance

EER review
