About us


Beyond Learning Exchange was set up by Bays Union Trust and Bridge2Rocks Time Bank, as a platform for people in the local community to share their skills and passions, reduce isolation and engage in time swapping.


We now have a whole community of people who are excited to share what they love with you. From sous vide cooking, to family violence prevention, art classes, tool sharpening and more! Check out the list of courses available, or get in touch about teaching or setting up a hub in your community!

The learning exchange is you!

Well, ok it's you and us :-p

The learning exchange is a network of community groups using this space to show off the great things going on around their community.

We:  do a bit of steering & organizing stuff to make it easy for people & groups to hold & promote learning events.

You:  show up and be awesome, sharing talents and life lessons to friends and whanau around the neighbourhood.

Our project is supported by a generous team who volunteer their time to provide steering and guidance, as well as the Sumner Bays Union Trust, who hold the project in general.

Together we make learning in Otautahi Christchurch available to heaps more people.

It's important to us that it's easy to connect & learn together, and that everyone can be involved.


Keen to be a part of the story?

Whether you're an accomplished pastry chef, amateur gardener, or a business-person looking to educate the community about your industry, The Learning Exchange provides an opportunity to share your passion.
