Taking students where they want to be
Unitec has announced the launch of Bridgepoint – a range of programmes specially designed to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
Through a series of Foundation Education Certificates, Bridgepoint takes students to a point where they can apply for diploma or degree level study.
Bridgepoint spokesperson Debra RobertsonWelsh says Unitec is excited to work with both school leavers and career changers, to develop the vocational skills and knowledge they need to progress to higher education or successfully enter the workforce.
‘‘Many people have goals, but we know that a barrier to success can be not knowing where to start. That’s why we’re thrilled to offer a service like Bridgepoint, which works with students to identify where they want to get to and the study path needed to get there.
‘‘We offer a broad variety of subjects, including social sciences, nursing, creative arts, engineering, construction, business and sport. And we’re here to ensure Bridgepoint students get the most out of their study – supporting them at every step of the way towards their education and career goals,’’ she says.
Bridgepoint has small classes and a supportive learning environment. The programmes cater for all ages and backgrounds.
