Official Media Release - 15th August 2022


Kalandra Education Group is very excited and proud to announce that in partnership with the New Zealand Society of Diversional and Recreational Therapist Inc. we will offer the New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing (Social and Community Services) (Level 4) strand in Diversional Therapy and continue to develop further qualifications at level 5 and above. This is a fabulous opportunity to respond directly to industry needs and to offer programmes that reflect the professionalism, complexity, and breadth of this role.

"We are happy to announce that we met with Dr Christine today. She is the Chief Executive and Founder of Kalandra.

Christine is a Registered Nurse and achieved her Doctoral Studies in Aged Care.

We are happy to announce that we will be closely collaborating with them as they launch their newly NZQA approved Diversional and Recreational Therapy Qualification this August.

More information coming soon! But in a nutshell, any NZ Citizen and Resident will now be able to acces this qualification .

A massive win for us and for those who have been asking to acces this Qualification for many years through other providers in NZ."
