BEST fam­ily: A bet­ter life through ed­u­ca­tion

Central Leader - - News -

2008 is a mile­stone for Best Pa­cific In­sti­tute of Ed­u­ca­tion.

This year they cel­e­brate 20 years of serv­ing Pa­cific com­mu­ni­ties by pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes and em­ploy­ment out­comes.

As they re­flect on th­ese achieve­ments, their goal is to con­tinue the suc­cess of the past two decades and to de­velop even bet­ter pro­grammes and out­comes for Pa­cific peo­ples.

“We would not be where we are to­day with­out the sup­port of our com­mu­ni­ties,” says BEST sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager, Penny Cu­sack.

“They have sup­ported our mis­sion to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion and bet­ter ca­reer and job choices, and given us the back­ing which has en­abled us to grow and suc­ceed.”

In reach­ing out, BEST has had the priv­i­lege and the op­por­tu­ni­ties to fos­ter strong part­ner­ships with Pa­cific churches, the busi­ness com­mu­nity and oth­ers who share their vi­sion.

Such part­ner­ships have en­abled them to take the BEST mes­sage - “Ed­u­ca­tion is both worth­while and within reach” - to more peo­ple.

BEST’s aim is to help peo­ple get the best out of their lives through ed­u­ca­tion. Learn­ing new skills, in­creas­ing your knowl­edge and gain­ing a qual­i­fi­ca­tion at BEST will give you the op­por­tu­nity for bet­ter jobs and ac­cess to fur­ther ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.

BEST makes it easy for peo­ple to choose ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion by hav­ing lit­tle or no en­try cri­te­ria for the ma­jor­ity of their pro­grammes. In short, they want to help you achieve your dreams and goals!

There are many great rea­sons for study­ing at BEST. For starters, you learn at your own pace. If you are jug­gling work and fam­ily you can choose be­tween day and evening classes. BEST will help you fit study into your life and sup­port you all the way.

Pro­grammes are NZQA ac­cred­ited and ap­proved so your qual­i­fi­ca­tions are na­tion­ally recog­nised.
