Renae Maree Couche - Foundation (Vet Nursing)

“I’ve always wanted to be a vet nurse but I had learning difficulties at school so I just shut the possibility down. I left school with no qualifications but now at aged 22 with a four year old, I’ve taken the first steps to realize what I thought was my impossible dream.”

“With the help of the tutors here I now understand that people all learn differently and that I can learn. I have the right help here. I dreaded school but I really like coming to the course and I’ll be able to into vet nursing when I pass Foundation Level 3.”

“This is getting me into study and I’m on a totally new life pathway. My whole sense of who I am has changed and I will now be able to contribute to the family more on every level.” 

At the end of next year I can start studying my Vet Nursing through Tauranga Polytech. I may do a computer course so that I can help with reception at a vet clinic too.”

“Now I can actually see myself doing this. I can actually let the dream in. I want people out there with learning difficulties who feel they can’t progress, to know that NorthTec caters to all different learning styles. They make it possible to take the steps to turn your dream into reality.”
