If you’re returning to formal education, the foundation studies programme is your stepping stone.
Foundation studies will help you gain confidence in your academic ability and provide a great pathway to further qualifications at NorthTec. The courses are tailored to meet each student’s needs and include literacy, numeracy and communication skills.
This is not a one-size-fits-all course. It’s about helping individuals find their feet and walk their own journey. It doesn’t matter if you left school last week or decades ago. If you haven’t been in a classroom for a long time, don’t be put off – life experiences enrich learning!
The tutors are right behind you every step of the way and with their support these courses will help you reach your goals.
Students who began their journey here needing help with literacy and numeracy skills have progressed all the way to degrees and careers they never dreamed possible – in nursing, business, social services, sport and recreation and trades. Follow in their footsteps.
Remember, it’s never too late to be who you might have been.
It’s never too late to set an example for your children or your mokopuna.
