What is CareyLocal?

Learn, grow, and be transformed – wherever you are!

CareyLocal is a cohort-mode of teaching designed to build biblical foundations for church volunteers, ministry and mission leaders, and anyone wanting to grow in their discipleship. Different NZQA-accredited courses are offered each year, and cover theology, biblical studies, pastoral care, and mission. They are offered at level 5 on the NZQA framework for credit.

You will engage with your lecturer online one evening each week, discuss course content in your context and support one another with your studies.

We are excited to announce that the course for Semester 2, 2024 is our new Certificate in Christian Leadership (Micro-credential).

What is study for credit?

All CareyLocal courses are  NZQA-accredited and offered at level 5 on the NZQA framework. All study is for credit. This involves completing the entire course including all assessments. Students will spend two hours a week at the evening session and can expect to commit up to a further seven hours a week to reading and preparing for lectures and assignments.

In each course students will normally be given three assessment tasks. These can be a combination of online tasks, online forum participation, quizzes, creative assignments, and/or written tasks and essays. These assessments are spread over the 17-week semester and are uploaded via our online learning portal—Carey Online.

Students will be given resources to use and are also expected to access our library resources.
