How Papa Taiao Earthcare can help you gain your Award

Papa Taiao Earthcare is a sustainability and ecological restoration training organisation that enables young people to lead enterprising social, cultural and environmental projects while gaining NCEA qualifications and earthcare skills.

With bases in Wellington and Northland, Papa Taiao Earthcare operates as an independent Award Unit. You can register under their umbrella to do the Award and work on all sections of the Award through Papa Taiao Earthcare programmes.  Once you've committed to doing the Award, you log all your progress online on our Online Record Book.
