In New Zealand, Praxis offers short workshops and a range of NZQA accredited qualifications in youth development and community education. \r\n\r\nFull time courses offered by Praxis are approved for student loans and allowance funding. GÇï Full time courses are taught through a series of four residential block courses, plus a day per week in class. \r\n\r\nBlock courses are around a week long each and are normally held at camps or on marae. Attendance at all block courses and class days is a course requirement. Classes are generally not held during the school holidays. GÇï Block course dates for the following year will be on the Praxis website from 1 September each year.
