SOCIAL SCIENCES

student PROFILE Filly Misiluti

Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Social Work) Filly Misiluti has always had an interest in advocacy and social justice and wants to work in the mental health sector when she finishes her studies. Born and raised in Tokoroa, she worked in IT in Auckland but wanted to work in a field where she could make a difference in people’s lives. A stint working back in Tokoroa helped her decide she was ready for a change of pace. Studying at Waiariki Institute of Technology meant she could be close to family and the support network that would provide during her three years of studying toward the Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Social Work). Her interest in mental health stems from the people in her life who have gone through mental illness and a desire to advocate for those who are marginalised. “A lot of issues stem from mental illness and I like standing up for people’s rights and for social justice. A lot of people with mental illness don’t have a voice.” While mental health is her chosen path, she says the qualification she is studying toward offers a very broad range of opportunities. “A lot of people think social work is just to do with Child, Youth and Family services but you can work in many different kinds of organisations – from nonprofit to hospitals, schools and government departments – and you can work with all ages. “I like the idea of being able to help improve people’s lives, connecting them to other organisations, providing options for them to make decisions that will make their lives and their families’ lives better.” Filly says the learning environment at Waiariki has a supportive, whānau feel she enjoys and which has helped her achieve and overcome any challenges she’s faced.


SOCIAL scienCES If you’re looking for a career with meaning, action, diversity, satisfaction and an abundance of options, consider social work. Social workers are people who care about people, who want to make things better, who want to relieve suffering, who want their work to make a difference in society. Social work is a profession devoted to empowering people to function to the best of their abilities in their environment. This can mean providing services or therapy directly to people, or working for change to improve social conditions. Skills and interests you may already have: Emotionally mature, objective and sensitive to people and their problems Able to handle responsibility and work independently Positive, socially competent person Good problem-solving and multi-tasking skills

We look forward to teaching you: Organisational, time management and good communication skills Knowledge and understanding of the law and legal procedures How to maintain good working relationships with clients and co-workers

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

GRADUATE PROFILE Kirstie Storey

Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education), and Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood Education Kirstie Storey loves to see young children succeed and Waiariki Institute of Technology enabled her to also focus on something else she holds dear – biculturalism. Of Ngāti Porou/Kahungunu descent, Kirstie was teaching new entrants in Brisbane but returned to New Zealand to study early childhood education. “I’ve always enjoyed interacting with children and watching them learn and flourish – you never know what they’ll come up with next,” the 24-year-old says. She chose to enrol at Waiariki because she wanted to learn and teach in the strong bicultural learning environment provided by the institute. “I was basically brought up on the marae on the East Coast and in Australia and there has always been a strong focus in our family on te reo Māori and culture. I feel I have something to offer in that respect.” Having graduated from Waiariki with the Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) in 2011 and then following that up with the Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood Education in early 2013, Kirstie is now working as a provisionally registered teacher with infants and young children. Her Waiariki qualifications have opened up many opportunities and Kirstie says she could see herself working in or toward a variety of roles within the early childhood education sector – from mainstream childcare to bicultural childcare, primary teaching, early childhood centre management or ownership, policy development, tutoring, specialist fields like behavioural services or social work.


EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION Children are little beings who are curious about each and every thing they see around them. They are energetic and take in everything that they observe. What children learn during childhood remains with them throughout their life so it is vital to support and challenge their thinking from a very young age. Working with young children can be stressful at times and needs a lot of patience, though it is very rewarding watching them learn and grow as you help shape their lives and instil positive knowledge and experiences in them. Skills and interests you may already have: Passion to work with young children from babies to toddlers and kindergarten ages Creative, imaginative and resourceful Firm but fair, understanding and patient

We look forward to teaching you: Knowledge of child learning and development, and of early literacy and numeracy Good communication skills and the ability to relate well to children and adults from a range of cultures
