Our Courses

PEC is the only NZQA Registered Private Training Establishment offering NZQA Approved free community Pasifika language courses across six languages.


For over 40 years we have been supporting people to learn and gain confidence with Pacific languages and culture. Our tutors are all proficient and experienced in their language and culture and we support them to ensure they can share this with others.

Our students come from a range of backgrounds,  NZ-born, Island-born and non-Pacific.  We accept learners from 13 years - 16 years with adult supervision, and 16yrs+.
