Graduates have the opportunity to advance to the following qualification

We now have an additional session on day 2 of the second block course. Introducing, GoodYarn:

Good Yarn workshops were first established back in 2014 as a result of increased incidents of mental health struggles in the rural community in Southland. The programme was so successful that it is now delivered in general workshops across the country.

The ‘GoodYarn’ programme has been designed to deliver practical mental health and wellbeing resources specifically for the workplace.

The programme is based upon the premise that the first step in addressing mental health and wellbeing is being able to talk about it. The goal is to remove the stigma around mental health and enhance participants' understanding of mental health and the benefits of taking a proactive approach to managing their mental well-being.
