Vocational Pathways in Schools NZCC can deliver programmes in secondary schools. Since February 2015 NZCC has been involved in a “Secondary Tertiary Pilot Programme” in partnership with four South Auckland Secondary Schools. This is a pilot scheme delivering a health pathway programme using unit standards from the National Certificate in Health, Disability and Aged Support (Foundation Skills) (Level 2). Throughout the year students have the opportunity to experience education in a tertiary environment as they attend one day per week at NZCC’s Manukau Campus. It also includes a practical work placement in an aged care facility so the students get firsthand experience. If you’d like to know how NZCC can deliver vocational programmes at your school, contact us today using one of the methods on the last page of this prospectus.

gained my attention because I had not achieved NCEA Level 3 at high school, so it was a great way for me to get my foot in the door to further study.

How has studying at NZCC changed your life? It’s been so refreshing - my outlook on everything has changed. We were taught critical thinking, we were taught to question everything. That’s a skill that I now use not just in my studies, but in my life. During my NZCC studies I’ve explored many aspects of health and I’ve developed a strong interest in caring for people. Studying here has created a pathway that I actually want to pursue. The doors have been opened and it feels so great to have options!

Where to from here? I graduate in just a few weeks. I’m very excited! I’m thinking of working as a healthcare assistant for palliative care. It would be a privilege to make people’s last few moments more peaceful. My long-term goal though is to become an art therapist, helping people overcome mental health issues through art.

I went to Choice Kids for the second practicum of my Diploma at NZCC. Before the end of the practicum their Operations Manager asked me if I’d like to stay on part-time, and then come on full-time once I’d finished my NZCC studies. I couldn’t believe it and jumped at the opportunity straight away! I started off as a Caregiver Teacher, before being offered the position of Head Teacher. I felt very grateful and privileged to even be considered for this role.

Why did you decide to get into Early Childhood Education? I used to be a stay-at-home mum and worked part-time in the evenings as a cleaner, however I didn’t want to sit around home anymore. I saw NZCC’s Early Childhood programme advertised in the newspaper and it was the push I needed. Seeing children’s faces light up when they achieve something is such an amazing feeling!

What’s it like to study at NZCC? Studying at NZCC gives you a real sense of “family”. I especially enjoyed having class lunches, get togethers and little debates with my tutors and classmates! I also learnt a lot. The lecturers are very experienced and teach you about every little detail of the industry, how important it is to read up on all the policies and how vital it is to create a bond, not just with the children, but also with their parents, grandparents and siblings.

What Our Employers Say “The reason I chose an NZCCtrained nanny is I loved the idea of giving a young adult the chance to prove to themselves and to others that they are very capable of listening, learning and most of all, loving a child. So thank you NZCC, my young son is more aware of his surroundings, quick to pick things up, loves doing new activities and is friendly and happy.” Natasha Johnson employed an NZCC-trained nanny in her home.

“Usha is an integral part of the Magic Kingdom team. She brings good knowledge and positive behaviour guidance strategies. She has learned through her studies at NZCC the importance of working with the guardians of the future.” Meenakshi Seth from Magic Kingdom Childcare employs NZCC graduate Usha Devi.

International fees include tuition, study materials, licensing, student export levies and professional institute levies. Fees are calculated in calendar weeks regardless of any public holidays that may fall during a week.

NZCC programmes are approved for student loans and allowances for students that meet StudyLink eligibility criteria.

Full payment of fees is required before enrolment in a programme can take place. Additional Fees and Costs Whilst the fees cover full tuition costs (including the use of classroom equipment, study and reference materials, use of kitchen facilities, email and internet usage), additional fees apply for other expenses outside the scope of education, such as excursion costs. Please also note that travel, accommodation, and living costs are additional and not included in NZCC's fees. Compulsory Student Service Levy (CSSF) $400 The ACG Education Group requires a compulsory Student Services Levy (SSL) (GST inclusive) be paid by all full time students in 2017. The fee for a full-time equivalent student is set at $ 400 (GST inclusive). The fee funds key services for students to assist their success and overall well-being whilst studying at any of the ACG Education Group vocational colleges. A key component of these services are the continuous employment support provided for students during their period of study. All domestic students must pay the fee and can borrow the amount as part of their student loan.

For more details on the Student Services Levy (SSL), how to be involved with decision making and what the levy will be used for please visit nzcc.ac.nz

StudyLink is responsible for the administration of Student Allowance and Student Loans. Your Enrolments Advisor will assist you with applying for these services. To contact Studylink directly, call them on 0800 889 900 or email studylink@ msd.govt.nz. Students who are not New Zealand citizens, refugees or protected persons (or have not been sponsored into New Zealand by a family member who was recognised as a refugee or a protected person) will need to have been entitled to reside indefinitely in New Zealand, and have been living in New Zealand, for three years before they will qualify for a Student Allowance or Loan. Australian citizens are subject to the same residency requirements. This applies to new Student Allowance and Loan applications for study that commences on or after 1 January 2016. Students who would have been eligible in the 2015 calendar year under the previous twoyear stand-down rule will still be eligible from the date that they reach their three years in 2016. This applies whether or not they received an allowance or loan in 2015. For the latest information about loan eligibility, please contact StudyLink on 0800 889 900 or email StudyLink@msd.govt.nz. Jobseeker Support Student Hardship is financial assistance for full-time students who cannot find work during the holidays. This is short-term support only and students must meet set criteria to qualify.

Domestic Student Withdrawals and Refunds Programmes of 12 weeks or more: • Withdrawal before a programme start date will receive a full refund. • If a student withdraws within 8 working days after and including the scheduled start date of their programme, all tuition fees less 10% or $500 (whichever is lesser) will be refunded. • If a student withdraws from their programme of study after 9 working days before the completion date, they would only be eligible for a refund of tuition fees in exceptional circumstances. This will be at the discretion of the General Manager and will be considered on a case-bycase basis. Students should provide documentation to support any such application which must be made within one month of the last day of attendance. Additional Intakes From time to time, additional intakes will occur in selected programmes, outside the dates listed in this prospectus. Please check our website regularly to stay up-to-date with these.
