Adult Community Education (ACE)

The New Zealand Tertiary Education Strategy 2010-2015 sets out the Government’s vision for Tertiary Education. Our work in the region reflects the following ACE priorities, enabling our people to make a valuable contribution to their future.

ACE Priorities

  • The targeting of learners whose previous learning was not successful
  • The raising of foundation skills
  • The strengthening of social cohesion

REAPs’ ACE role is supported via their national body REAP Aotearoa NZ (REAPANZ) offering community education to adults and families.



WestREAP’s programme focusses on: developing Digital Literacy, building ACE spaces in the community as potential learning hubs for people who are re-entering education, study or employment. Places like our community garden in Fitzherbert Street, Hokitika and Tech Space in Greymouth are hubs that bring people together.
