Have micro-credentials helped you get ahead?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder.

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

Here at Curtain Clean we are big advocates of sustainability. Clean, re-use, recycle!


Help us reduce waste and have fun doing it with our little tutorial on how to turn a T-shirt into a re-usable bag.

You’ll need:
• Old t-shirt – The thicker the fabric, the sturdier the bag
• Sharp scissors, preferably fabric scissors
• Washable marker (optional)


Step 1: Cut the sleeves off so it resembles a singlet.


Step 2: Cut the neckline area into a circle or oval – these will become our handles. Trace a bowl to get a perfectly round circle.


Step 3: Turn the t-shirt inside out. Determine where you want the bottom of the bag to be and trace a line across. Keep in mind that depending on the fabric used, your tote is likely stretch and become longer when it’s filled with stuff.


Step 4: Cut slits from the bottom of the shirt up to the line marking the bottom of your bag. Keep the slits small to prevent large gaps in the bottom of the bag. You’ll want to cut both the front and back layers together because they need to match up for the next step.


Step 5: Tie the front and back fringe together in knots and turn the shirt right side out. For extra embellishments, tie the straps (handles) in knots, or tie bits of t-shirt scrap to the top.
P.S. We'd love to see your creations!!

New Scam

Elizabeth from Enderley

I have received what could only be described harassment by phone from people who say that are from a company called Global Logic. Do not talk with them and most certainly do NOT type anything into your computer under their instruction. They do have what looks to be a legitimate web page, but it is not. They rang more than 20 times in the space of about 40 minutes. As soon as I hung up they phoned back. Report this behaviour to netsafe, and phone the police who tried to tell me that no crime had been committed in this case as I didn't do as they had asked, but I reminded them that harassment is a crime and therefore I expect it to be treated as such. Good luck with this everyone, and stand strong.

One way to take part is by joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Support group on your street.

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!
