Our Stakeholders

Key Funders

Building strong relationships with our client groups and ensuring a firm appreciation of the aspirations of these groups has resulted in PEETO enjoying a strong working relationship with the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC - and its predecessors Education and Training Support Agency and Skill New Zealand). The Tertiary Education Commission has recognised PEETO's expertise and leadership in developing and delivering training geared to advancing the aspirations of Refugee, Migrant and Pacific peoples within the region. The results, since 1991, has in more recent times, led to other central government agencies such as Ministry of Social Development including Work and Income, Department of Labour, Land Transport New Zealand and Christchurch City Council utilising the expertise and leadership that PEETO offers. We also provide courses under TEC ACE (Adult Community Education) funding.

New Partnerships

PEETO continues to seek out new partnerships that will enhance the aspirations of our target communities / groups. Over recent years PEETO has developed collaborative programmes with:

Pasifika People
