NZATD Canterbury Branch enjoys connection with the local members, individuals and organisations who share a passion and professional interest in learning and development. Our network welcomes anyone who wants to share in rich conversations, ideas to enhance professional practice and to explore the successes and challenges of adult learning in the corporate, not- for -profit and community sectors.


We aim to support trainers, facilitators and leaders of learning by sharing knowledge, providing real case studies, exploring best practice experientially and discussing strategic issues in leadership for learning. Our local group provides a place where you can meet, network, find a sounding board for ideas and gain inspiration.


If you would like to have some input to our programmes but do not wish to join a committee, you are welcome to join us our Reference Team. We have opted for a networked approach and very much appreciate the input of our local community. To find out more you are welcome to contact us at
