Alternative Education National Body
The Alternative Education National Body (AENB) recognises that Alternative Education is a specialised service meeting the educational needs for some of Aotearoa New Zealand's most 'at risk' and transient young people.
Alternative Education providers strive to engage these young people in learning.
This is accomplished by utilising a holistic approach and creating a whānau environment. Whilst a student is in Alternative Education they gain the confidence to make their next step in education, albeit a return to mainstream schooling, other training opportunities or employment.
