    permission denied for file inside home folder

    hay guys i was strolling along in the terminal today and copied a folder from my hard drive that was fine now
    The folder i want to open this there "tafe cert4"

    ninjalo161@ninjalo161-Aspire-5742:/home$ ls -a
    . .. ninjalo161 Tafe cert4
    then i do this and get this

    ninjalo161@ninjalo161-Aspire-5742:/home$ cd Tafe\ cert4
    bash: cd: Tafe cert4: Permission denied
    i also tried

    ninjalo161@ninjalo161-Aspire-5742:/home$ sudo cd Tafe\ cert4
    sudo: cd: command not found
