Welcome to Creative Training Network

Creative Training Network is a small company that was established in 2000 specialising in training programme management, brokerage and related training consultancy services, including design and delivery.

 For the past 11 years CTN was contracted by CYF and MSD to manage capacity building initiatives under national contracts. We successfully delivered hundreds of workshops and thousands of hours of mentoring support to a wide range of social service providers.

Two years ago the CYF funding resource was disestablished and responsibility for capacity building (and funding) has moved to FACS regionally. Consequently CTN is not managing any government contracts working with community providers as we have done in the past and we have scaled down this website with only this front page remaining.

We are however still operative and seeking training related contracts and we recently managed the registrations for the "Promoting Recovery and Building Resilience for Individuals and Communities" workshops which were delivered by the Mental Health Education Resource Centre in Christchurch.

The change in the contracting situation has meant some personal changes and I am currently seeking other part time opportunities on a contract basis. I am able to offer organisations a wide range of experience and skills covering most areas of management and organisational development including research, evaluation, training and development, funding/grants and special projects. Based in Cambridge I prefer to work locally but also can travel and the internet makes distance work much easier.

Carl Pascoe who is the other partner in CTN is based in Christchurch and he is also available for facilitation and organisational development contract work.

Please feel free to give either Carl or myself a call to discuss your needs. One of the values of CTN has always been that if we can't help you we will assist in finding someone who can.
