People Potential has been operating for 25 years in Whangarei. The recent opening of two new classroom blocks in Keyte Street shows their commitment to the local community and a firm belief in a bright future. This local family business, established by Sandra McKersey in 1991, has shown its capacity to endure huge changes in that time and its adaptability to the ever-changing landscape of tertiary education has meant People Potential has not just survived, but thrived. Operating from its Keyte Street campus in Whangarei, this year also marks ten years of business in Kaikohe. It has an office in Dargaville, Papakura and Hamilton. People Potential has grown from a tiny team in First Avenue to a company employing more than 100. Not only does it provide relevant qualifications, it is also a serious employer in its own right. People Potential has been awarded the industry Provider of the Year award (2018) and members of the team have been judged outstanding nationally too many times to list here. It has been found to be highly competent by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and has been awarded further contracts by the Tertiary Education Commission in a shrinking market. Adding new buildings, new team members and new qualifications confirms its place as an important part in the education sector and its confidence in the communities in which we are based.
