‘Noel Leeming in the Community’

Our Program

Noel Leeming is proud to be helping communities discover technology through our not-for-profit initiative The Mobile Learning Centre.

The Mobile Learning Centre is a free Noel Leeming community initiative with a mission to help kiwis discover the potential of new technology! Our high tech classroom on wheels is currently on a 2 year road trip across the country to share some of some of the many ways technology can enhance our lives and learning.

Our visits to schools and communities provide a uniquely engaging, hands on learning environment for students, teachers and senior citizens. We are excited by the many opportunities new technologies have for us all and we aim to share our knowledge; empowering and enriching the lives of rural New Zealanders.

Making a Difference with our Mobile Learning Centre

December 2016 will see the Mobile Learning Centre having visited 200 low-decile schools with over 18,000 students having benefited as a result. We have also helped an additional 12,000 Kiwis develop their technology skills through aged care and holiday events.

The next 12 months will see us launching the Noel Leeming Community Learning programme where every Open Learning Store will partner with a local low-decile school with regular visits from an open learning specialist. We will also be providing quarterly in-store events for teachers from local schools, which will cover everything from robotics to coding 3D printing.
