The Centre for Lifelong Learning offers an extensive range of courses and workshops designed to develop professional skills, improve workplace capability and enhance employability.

Our courses are for working professionals and executives, and we create programmes for international clients. Courses are designed and presented by expert academics and practitioners who provide educational experiences that will help build your own and your organisation’s performance.

Covid-19 update:

The Wellington region is in Alert Level 1 (from 11.59pm, Monday 21 September) and our courses are back to running as normal.

We are still asking that if you are sick please do not attend your course and contact us on profdev@vuw.ac.nz to be transferred to the next course. If you cannot attend a course for a Covid-related reason we will transfer you to the next available course at no cost.

Kia kaha—stay safe and please continue to check here for further updates.
