Great start to re­ward­ing ca­reers at NZCC

Central Leader - - HEALTH& WELL-BEING -

Do you love work­ing with chil­dren? If your an­swer is ‘Yes!’, then why not turn your pas­sion into a re­ward­ing ca­reer that will take you places?

New Zealand Ca­reer Col­lege (NZCC) is in­tro­duc­ing its highly suc­cess­ful nanny course, Cer­tifi­cate in Early Childhood Prac­tice, to its Auck­land cam­pus, and it is look­ing for en­thu­si­as­tic po­ten­tial stu­dents.

The level 4 course, which has been of­fered at NZCC’s Wellington cam­pus for more than 20 years, com­mences on Fe­bru­ary 3, 2014.

Through­out the 20-week pro­gramme, you will learn how to cre­ate an en­rich­ing and ful­fill­ing en­vi­ron­ment for a child. It is highly prac­ti­cal, in­volv­ing one day in class and four days with a fam­ily per week for the du­ra­tion of the course. Stu­dents and fam­i­lies are as­sessed, vet­ted and matched to en­sure a cor­dial work­ing en­vi­ron­ment that’s ac­cept­able to both.

And be­cause the fam­ily pays for the nanny ser­vices, the pro­gramme is ef­fec­tively free for stu­dents. At $200 per 30 hour week it rep­re­sents great value for the pay­ing fam­ily as well.

NZCC is also of­fer­ing the Cer­tifi­cate in Health Care Sup­port (Level 4). The 20-week course, which starts in Fe­bru­ary 2014, suits any­one over 18 years of age, and NZCC ac­cepts ma­ture stu­dents too. Stu­dent com­ment: ‘‘My train­ing fam­ily and sup­port tu­tor helped me through the course in a very pos­i­tive way.’’ Fam­ily com­ment: ‘‘The col­lege has been such a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for both of us and our girls, who have been lucky enough to have had amaz­ing girls from NZCC look­ing af­ter them.’’

As the recog­nised foun­da­tion path­way provider to AUT, the pro­gramme not only re­sults in the award­ing of univer­sity en­trance, but is also ideal prepa­ra­tion for fur­ther stud­ies in health, es­pe­cially in a ter­tiary en­vi­ron­ment.

Susanah De Fuentes, 36, who grad­u­ates in De­cem­ber, says the course gives stu­dents the edge in an in­tensely com­pet­i­tive field.

‘‘I re­ally wanted to be a den­tal hy­gien­ist and ther­a­pist,’’ she says. ‘‘NZCC has been an ex­cel­lent plat­form to restart my ca­reer from.’’

‘‘We work very hard to give our stu­dents the skills they need,’’ Kitt Fore­man, pro­gramme man­ager says.
