Free NZSE work­shops let stu­dents sam­ple cour­ses

Central Leader - - EDUCATION& TRAINING -

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.face­ NZSE or call 0800 99 88 11.

The ‘Taste It’ work­shops are short, sharp and fun, and will help you take an in­formed de­ci­sion.
