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: All our courses have been cancelled or postponed through to the end of April. You can continue to enrol on a course beyond that date. We are hoping to offer some online courses shortly and will be in touch when these are available. Email us for any information relating to specific courses—profdev@vuw.ac.nz.
