The Pa Enua is an important part of CITTI’s programming with the aim of providing high-quality on-island training for Cook Islanders so that they can stay on their home islands.

Pa Enua programmes are community-based and responsive to the unique needs of each island. Aitutaki, Pukapuka and Mangaia have full time programmes as they have the largest populations. Other islands have visiting programs with expected growth in tertiary and community education over the years.
