About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of this MC is to develop participants' knowledge, skills and attitudes in engaging effectively with whānau and other natural supports. These are core skills for a range of helping professions. The MC format fills a gap, as a programme targeting this particular level of applied skills proficiency is currently not easily accessible in EIT's regions.
