Learn stuff and go places with IHC and Te Kura
The latest from IHC Media is a free learning package offered in partnership with Te Kura, the former Correspondence School.
Four Te Kura videos are ready and waiting online in IHC Learn. They show you how to find information about your community and about public transport, and there are tips on how to manage your time and fill in forms.
Finding out where to go for information will make your day-to-day activities a lot easier and keep you safe in your community.
The transport course looks at the advantages of using different sorts of transport. Students practise using timetables, develop map-reading skills and how to plan and complete a journey using public transport.
The time-management course is great for people who have trouble knowing how long things can take and to think about how they spend their time. It also looks at the idea of time-wasting and strategies to avoid this.
Form-filling can be hard. This course looks at why we need to fill in forms, how to fill them in, and provides tips on the kind of words you might find.
Te Kura made these learning videos and has heaps more you could do. You could do some schoolwork or even study towards a certificate or qualification that could help with a job.
Te Kura’s National Leader of Learning, Kirsten Anderson, says the collaboration with IHC was an exciting project to work on and it was great to be able to share Te Kura’s resources.
“The idea was for the modules, which are basically life skills, to provide a taster programme for IHC young adult and adult students.
If they want to do more, they can enrol with Te Kura,” Kirsten says. “In fact, we’ve already had some inquiries as a result of the modules being posted on IHC Learn.”
This is a FREE offer from our friends at Te Kura for people with an intellectual disability. You will need to say IHC is your school for this. You will also need a support person to sign up with you and to support you with your study. That might be someone who is paid to support you, a family member or a friend but they need to have enough time to help you.
