Tertiary Teaching Excellence AwardsTracey Poutama-MackieDid I jump or was I pushed? 1To enable all of you to get an understanding of how I got to the place I am, it is important to understand the journey of the organisation I work for as my progression has only happened as the progression of the organisation has.

the logos will give you an indication as well Background / History

2People Potential started back in 1990 by Sandra Mackersy, cofounder and Director. This is the actual building that they worked from in Whangarei a little batch delivering cooperate courses to businesses

BELIEF never doubted the individual, when know what they want and they think they can then we were half way there. When you get it right and inspire people its MAGIC! *We got it right..and continue to do so today.

Correlation of DISCIPLINES and standards required by prospective industry and the culture of the learning environment and organisation. hikoi te korero - kaupapa maori incorporated in programme, this encouraged participation by students by giving them the opportunity to learn more about their own heritage and implement, as well as things maori. Treaty of Waitangi. - whaka whanaungatanga environment encouraged responsibility to self, others and external contacts of progamme eg: Strive time, marae wananga, police station monitoring - Value of relationships beneficial to all parties eg: individual, organisation, police and the communities each student came from.

41996 moved to a bigger site more training courses started, & more staff.The culture of PP has always been kaupapa maori, and believing in the potential of the individual the name People Potential was no accident. When we say to the learner Your Potential is Our Priority, we mean it and we tell them, your hand is always in ours until your ready to let it go.. Marnie mentioned yesterday about negative learning experiences being a barrier to students ability to give input and self assess. the majority of our learners both (Youth and mature students) come with a negative learning experience that happened predominantly while they were either at primary or secondary school, our staff can relate to that & Sandra & I as well - so we know how important it is that we engage our learners differently so that their learning experience is positive which as we know motivates them to succeed. We are proof of student success.

So more staff, more courses, more learners5

Since 2005 we have a biennial staff conference at the Copthorne in Waitangi. Its gives the Management Team the opportunity to self asses and review, plan & strategise, share best practice and in the evening partners attend the conference dinner & stay overnight and staff that have been with the organisation for 10 years are acknowledged and presented with a taonga from Sandra & the PP Board of Directors. Theres 3 of us at the moment but we have 2 team members joining us next year.
