The Pasifika Education Centre (PEC) formerly known as PIERC Education have been advocating for educational success and the preservation of Pacific cultural heritage since 1975. A national organisation, charitable trust and training provider - PEC is a living treasure that belongs to and serves New Zealand’s Pacific community.
Our role is to promote life-long learning for Pacific people in the Adult and Community Education (ACE) sector. Through our Community Advisors, we network and work with other ACE providers to ensure initiatives are in place to meet the needs of our Adult Pacific learners.
Also our role is to facilitate the provision of initiatives and programmes to retain Pacific culture and promote the use of Pacific languages, publishing Pacific resources and operating the Pacific Library and Cultural Centre which houses numerous Pacific books and resources for all members of the public to purchase and view.
