Free NZSE workshops let students sample courses
Not sure what course to join? Don’t worry, the New Zealand School of Education (NZSE) is taking the guesswork out of course selection by rolling out free ‘Taste It’ workshops that allow students to check out as many programmes as they want.
‘‘NZSE is one of the first education providers in New Zealand to offer our communities the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ with our Taste It workshops,’’ Stewart Whyte, national development manager, says.
‘‘You don’t buy a car without a test drive; you don’t buy clothes before you try them out, so why would you pay for a course unless you are sure it’s right for you.
The workshops will be offered across NZSE’s seven schools and three campuses at New Lynn, Manukau and Auckland CBD. They will provide the community with insights into what activities, training methods, and pathway opportunities are occurring throughout the programme.
At the same time, it would enable NZSE to introduce their people, environment and support structures so you are able to make an informed decision regarding your educational pathway before you enrol.
Each workshop will be short, sharp, fun and requires only three hours (maximum) of your time. They are free and there’s no obligation at all.
Taste It could well be a career-saver for many students. People often enter into the wrong choice of study, mainly due to not being provided enough information. ‘‘Enrolling into any programme of study is a huge decision, and in most instances requires a huge financial investment so NZSE can help answer your questions,’’ Mr Whyte says.
In our view, Taste It is yet another unique initiative by NZSE, which is one of the leading providers of IT education in New Zealand. The institute has a 90 per cent completion rate and small class sizes.
You can attend as many free workshops as you want but spaces fill up quickly so to avoid disappointment register now. Text ‘‘NZSE’’ to 875 or visit their Facebook page www.facebook.com/ NZSE or call 0800 99 88 11.
The ‘Taste It’ workshops are short, sharp and fun, and will help you take an informed decision.
