Some companies we have worked in partnership with:

Nufarm NZ
The manufacturing facility at Nufarm NZ is partnering with the MIT CLDC team to improve the communication skills of our workforce. Employees so far involved have enjoyed the experience. The course benefits have implications both in and out of the workplace with increases in work quality and confidence. The CLDC team are proving to be a versatile resource, applying their adult education skills to a variety of our issues.

Tata Steel International (Australasia) Ltd
Tata Steel’s management in Auckland believed it had communication gaps with some of its staff (information being ignored or misinterpreted, an assumption that staff knew things that they didn’t and that we were not getting feedback from the team). 

We worked with MIT to help us find out if our concerns were real, identify clear goals and then to propose a pathway to achieve these. 

From this the MIT team designed and delivered a series of “Communications Skills” sessions for a selected group. The sessions not only improved the ability of the participants to be more effective communicators, but also lifted their self-esteem, giving them the ability to tell us what we needed and the willingness to do so.

Derek Titman; Logistics and Projects Manager

McIntosh Timber Laminates
Our employees benefited greatly by participating in a literacy programme run by M.I.T’s Customised Learning & Development Centre at our workplace last year.

The courses were clearly structured & tailored to our site & company goals.

The tutor & staff were always very supportive & accessible; reporting to management on progress regularly. The participants improved considerably in confidence & communication skills, at work & in family life.
