This programme is for those who want to begin study, but need to build confidence or brush up on skills. Students will choose from five pathways that align with their career goals, including: Health, Social Practice, Creative Industries, Early
Childhood, and the Open pathway for general subjects and skills.
Students will gain essential academic knowledge, capabilities, and skills needed to succeed at higher levels of study.
Students will be
introduced to new ideas and concepts in a step-by-step way, building their confidence as we guide them without holding their hand along the way. Classes range from lectures to small classes and labs (Health pathway), with a lot of online support. Tutors
will support students at every step of their journey, and there is an option of whānau based delivery for Māori and Pasifika students in the Health pathway.
On completion of the programme students will achieve a national qualification, the New Zealand Certificate
in Study and Career Preparation (Level 4), and be able to apply for further study in their preferred career pathway.
