We run our social media and gaming workshops on a Friday afternoon but have the capacity to work with our tutor to run more if needed.
In these small workshops (of up to 10 clients) for up to 10 weeks, everyone works to the NZQA unit standards and many clients after working with us, are able to go on and achieve success with obtaining qualifications with an external training institution. The outcome of these workshops is that people are able to demonstrate their understanding of how individuals interact with the media.
People are taught the safe and sensible way to use social media, Facebook, tweets, email and the many other forms of information technology used by everyone to communicate.
On the last workshop of the day we have gaming – NO R18 GAMES – but other games that are used, to give people the skills around the computer, enable competitive challenges and to have good fun in a safe environment.
