TEC LIFE HERE AT WEL
What’s a day like for our students? Amber, Cookery
I study four days a week, Monday to Thursday. It’s four and a half hours a day – either a morning shift from 8am to 12.30pm, or midday to 5pm, or the evening shift from 5 to 9.30pm. I get here half an hour early, change into a chef’s apron, hat, my nonslip shoes and so on. I need time to change, get into my uniform, as well as to relax prior to class. You spend three and a half to four hours in the kitchen with your tutor who does demos, then we do it ourselves. The tutors offer tips from their own experience, which is really helpful. For instance, all our recipes come from the students’ manual but the tutor might say, ‘for this particular dish, I prefer to use olive oil’.
In cooking, you end up with a lot of dishes, so we wash a lot of dishes! We spend the last half hour doing a really good clean up – we clean the hobs, sinks and benches.
Jeremy is studying his Electrical Engineering qualification in night classes because he works at his apprenticeship during the day.
I come into WelTec on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. I do normal working hours – a 40 hour week – then once I’m finished, come to ‘Tec. Jeremy Electrical Engineering
Bronwyn works full-time but is furthering her skills by completing the Graduate Diploma in Event Management.
I’m actually really lucky, my work has given me time to do this. I only go to school on Mondays, and that’s all that’s required. I go to work on Monday morning then go to school for five hours. In addition to class there’s some some after-hours stuff. Bronwyn Event Management
Business administration student Melinda is here Monday to Thursday.
It’s a 17 week course. I study from nine to three, Monday to Thursday, and after study I work part-time for a couple of hours. I have Fridays off. I do most of my assignments at WelTec, except self-assessed tests which you have to do at home. Melinda Business Admin
Ashley found himself a job at the end of his second year with KiwiRail. So he’s finishing off his Bachelor of Engineering Technology part-time.
For me, it’s a three-quarter day on Monday, a day off on Tuesday, all day Wednesday and I work on Thursday and Friday. Ashley Engineering
Juan, Creative Technologies
Jamie, Applied Decorating
In the first year, you go to school every day – it’s a lot like high school. In the second year it started becoming more real and the tutors become quite flexible. Now I’m in my third year, I’m often working from home or on location doing filming.
Right now, we’re dealing with colour and all sorts of decorating effects. Next week, we’re doing spray and then conventional painting and then we’re onto wallpaper.
I work from my studio at home on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesdays I have meetings with tutors. On Thursday there are exhibition tutorials, on Friday I’m there doing a first-year paper.
The course is very hands-on, it’s not just theory classes. It’s actually more practical than I thought it would be – that’s what I love about it. I get here an hour earlier, I don’t like to be late. I just go up to the computers before class then we get straight into things, chunk that out, have our first break then get straight into practical work for the rest of the afternoon. With only one hour of theory, I’m there every day.

5 tips to avoid an embarrassing first day
Don’t turn up in school uniform There’s no uniform at WelTec and there’s no assembly or form period either. Instead come along to orientation to familiarise yourself with everything and then once classes start, just go to the first class on your schedule.
Double check your timetable Check your timetable before heading to class. Ask for directions, use the campus maps. You’ll probably be the odd one out if you walk into veterinary nursing when you’re actually studying carpentry.
Show up to the right campus WelTec has three campuses in Wellington, as well as a campus in Auckland. You’re probably only going to study at one of those so it should be easy to remember.
Try not to break anything One of the great things about hands-on learning is you’ll get to work in an auto workshop or in a chef ’s kitchen, with cameras, trades tools or computers. Just try not to break anything, especially on your first day.
Call your tutor by their name – not ‘Mum’ by mistake Not much to help you here. Just listen to your tutors and use their first name.

But how to decide?
EN ADVICE FROM STUD
Finding the perfect option Here’s what some of our students thought about when choosing what to study.
Follow your interests You might already have a broad idea of what you’re good at and what you’d enjoy. Lochie followed his interests.
I didn’t really know what I wanted to do until early high school. I had an interest in construction and design and my parents told me to look into civil engineering. After doing some research, I’ve never looked back.
I never really had any idea what I wanted to do, never really found my passion at school. After taking a gap year, my parents were like, ‘We’re going to put you in this course’. I thought, ‘Ok, I’ll give it a go’. It’s set me down a broad path, but at last I’ve found a path.
Don’t just do something because your mates are That’s the advice from Kaneeda, who’s now at WelTec studying plumbing after doing a pre-trade course a couple of years ago.
Give it a shot if it’s something you really enjoy. Don’t just do it because all your mates are doing it.
Business student Chirag talked it through with his parents.
I wanted something I loved doing, I never wanted to do something that I just wasn’t that into. I’m doing what I love.
I studied tourism at WelTec because my aunty works for an airline and I grew up thinking I’d like to do that. Tourism at WelTec was a good choice.
It was also an easy choice for patisserie student Maxine who’d always loved cooking.
Talk to your parents
Tala always wanted to work for an airline and is now part of the Jetstar team at Wellington airport.
Do something you love
Do something you’ve always wanted to do
Henry, a plumbing apprentice who’s doing his qualification at WelTec, found out more about the industry by getting some work experience.
Check things out thoroughly before choosing a course. If you want to get into plumbing like I did, do things like visit a plumbing supplies shop, get some work experience, or get around and see some different workplaces.
Andrew spoke to people working in the industry before choosing the Bachelor of Information Technology at WelTec. I was tossing up between WelTec and Victoria. To pick the WelTec opportunity, I talked to a few people in the IT industry. I also have a mentor who runs an IT company. All said the same thing: WelTec offers more practical-based knowledge.
Start talking about it Event management student Sophie suggests talking through your study plans with friends, family, flatmates, future employers – in fact, anyone who’ll listen. You’ll get their thoughts on whether it’s a good option.
Chat to potential employers
At school, towards the last few years, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I knew I didn’t want to do an office job; I wanted something hands-on. I had a friend doing plumbing a few days a week and he really enjoyed it. I thought I’d give it a go.
Do something completely different Says Andrea who’s now studying IT programming and coding.
My partner suggested I get into programming. At the time, I had no idea what it was all about. It was a big change. I wanted to use more of my brain power.
Try it out
Just start getting yourself out there, start talking about your plans for study. I wanted to do something to give me a bit more of a foot in the door and I’ve now met so many people and made a lot of connections.
Talk with our tutors Have a chat to some of our tutors at the open day or drop them an email. Jovan, who’s doing the Diploma in Computer Servicing, knows how helpful they are.
Pay attention to tutors and what they say, when you start and at the open day. They pretty much take care of you.
Kaneeda also recommends checking out the industry up-close.
Do some hands-on research

ADDICTIONS, COUNSELLING AND YOUTH STUDIES
e r a c o t Learn
Addictions, Counselling, Youth Studies Want to make a difference in your community? Our students do. They appreciate that WelTec’s Addictions, Counselling and Youth Studies programmes are practical and applied, and that you learn through work experience. What you learn is how to actually help people in the community. Whether it’s helping a family affected by alcohol, counselling someone who’s mourning or inspiring young people, your training will help get you ready to handle these challenges. Our students like that they learn from people who have rich experience in these areas and who are doing research in these fields. We also work with professional bodies to make sure what you study is recognised, applicable and approved. Our close connection to the sector also offers you many opportunities to do work experience, practicums, gain clinical practice and to get supervision. Our study programmes can be designed to suit you. We know life’s busy. We offer full-time and part-time options at both our Wellington CBD campus and at Petone, as well as in Auckland. You can also do some learning online or do a short course. WelTec is flexible.
Range of courses
You’ll grow your understanding of addictions. The theory behind it as well as practical strategies to treat clients and help them manage addictions. What you learn is based on tested research and you’ll then do work experience to practise your skills. You can study at several different levels and you’ve got options to do full-time or part-time study.
You can also study courses in:
> Addiction Worker
You’ll learn a range of counselling techniques and therapies to help people. And you’ll put these skills into practice under clinical supervision. We offer different qualifications. Choose a diploma, bachelor degree or graduate diploma. Gain new knowledge or take your existing skills further.
Youth Studies Want to see young people succeed? The Bachelor of Youth Development gives you the skills and on-the-job training to help do just that. You’ll learn and work as you go with a work placement – if you’re already doing some youth work, you can continue that, or we’ll help you find somewhere you can use your skills.

Jessie Bachelor of Youth Development Jessie works at Vibe, a youth health service in the Hutt Valley. She coordinates youth programmes, runs workshops with the community and provides one-on-one support for young people. “We have all these different wellbeing services in the one place so if a person has a need, they can come in and access multiple services in the same building. “I’ve been here for seven years so I was already developing some practical skills, but going to WelTec gave me all the theories and tools I needed as well. Now I know why I’m doing what I’m doing, and I’m incorporating it into everything I deliver.” Youth worker Jessie uses the skills she learned at WelTec every day. She was part of the first group of students to graduate with the Bachelor of Youth Development in 2015, building on the skills she was gaining from working in the field. “When the degree came up, I’m pretty sure I was the first person to put my name down for it. Then to be one of the first through the programme made it feel like you were making a difference and you were a part of something important, which was really exciting.”
Doing the WelTec course was an amazing experience. It made me even more passionate about youth development.
Jessie had the support of a youth worker at Vibe when she was a teenager so knows the value of a skilled practitioner. “During that age, it’s a really hard time for young people and being someone who can support them and they know they can come to for support, it just makes you feel great, it makes you feel like you’re doing something worthwhile.” Going back to study wasn’t the easiest thing for Jessie, but she says it was definitely worthwhile. “I came in quite an unconfident student, I didn’t go far in school and so I didn’t think I could do further study. But the tutors are absolutely amazing – all are gurus in their fields – and when I came in, they helped me get up to scratch and helped me get to where I needed to go.”

Scott NZIM Diploma in Management He also coaches the Wellington Sevens team – national champs in 2013 and finalists this year – is involved with the Hurricanes development programme and is also a skills coach for New Zealand Sevens players based in Wellington. “Trying to get the best out of your players is very similar to trying getting the best out of your employees.”

Computer Power Plus offers: > Qualified and experienced instructors that guide and mentor students to achieve their study goals > Flexible study options which allow students to study full-time or part-time > Morning, afternoon and evening study shifts > Dedicated job placement support > The opportunity to start any week
Scott, who also represented New Zealand in Sevens and played for New Zealand Maori, says having been involved in coaching – both as a player and coach – has definitely helped.
Former All Black and local rugby hero Scott Waldrom is studying management at WelTec as he prepares for the next stage in his sports coaching career. “I’m learning a lot and I’m able to transfer a lot of the management knowledge into my coaching as well. It’s a huge passion of mine. “I’m quite surprised that a lot of the diploma crosses over to coaching – areas such as people management, management structures, roles and responsibilities right through to leadership and motivation.” As well as studying full-time, Scott works at Avalon Rugby Club as the club’s development officer.
“Having that bit of experience means I have an appreciation of the different topics we cover. Now though, I can put a bit of book knowledge into it. For instance, we’ve been looking at different terms and theories around different ideas and I now understand new thinking that can be applied with coaching players.” “I’m enjoying being able to put my knowledge towards something and get a qualification for it.” Returning to study has been a big change for Scott, but he says it’s an opportunity he couldn’t afford to miss. “I wasted a couple of years out of school and it’s one of my regrets. Being able to have another chance and go back has been quite rewarding.”
In rugby, sure, you get your wins, but actually having a qualification behind you gives you a firm foundation for the future.

The horror film project “The best bit about it is that we’re working on feature films, we’re working on a finished film. These are not exercises so it gives the students something they can really aim towards,” says Alex.
Our Creative students are busy working on a feature film, one of a number of industry projects that are part of their course. Students are involved in all aspects of a horror movie being directed by tutor and local film-maker Alex Galvin. Pre-production. Storyboarding. Location scouting. Photography. Live action shooting. Visual effects. Poster design. Marketing and promotion. “They’re getting a taste of all the different jobs in the film industry and seeing what works for them,” says Alex. “In our industry, what’s really important is that you have a real passion, that you’re reliable and that you’re good at what you do. You can learn those skills here. “If you have specific passions, this opportunity can help you really tailor those so you can work towards them in the film industry.”
This is an opportunity for many students to work on the film and to get very valuable experience from a lot of top industry professionals.
Part of the programme involves students making props for the film. They’ll be working with WelTec tutor Gareth McGhie who was previously a workshop supervisor at Weta Workshop. He worked on major blockbusters including The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, King Kong and Avatar. WelTec was also visited by two Hollywood producers in June who are looking to be involved in the project. “It’s such a unique opportunity and most educational establishments don’t have this kind of opportunity. I certainly didn’t when I was studying many years ago,” says Alex. “One of the huge benefits for students is that once they graduate, they will have a feature film credit on their CV.”
The Kiwi director’s 2013 sci-fi thriller Eternity won awards at the Madrid International Film Festival, California Film Awards and was screened at the Cannes Antipodes, St Tropez Antipodes and Boston Science Fiction film festivals.

Engineering As the world gets more complex, the need for engineering solutions increases. There’s a global demand for engineering skills which makes this an exciting field to enter. Our engineering degrees and diplomas are a good combination of theory and practical work. Plus you’ll learn in modern workshops with the latest technology – we’ve just spent $3 million upgrading our engineering facilities. Engineering goes beyond machinery, construction and circuitry. It encompasses sustainability and community, and ultimately improves the way we live. The work of an engineer is at the heart of modern life - be it developing production models that suit the environment, providing clean water or creating technologies that bring people together.
Get qualified faster One of the great things about engineering at WelTec is you can get in, get some skills and get straight out to the workforce. You can achieve a Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree in three years or national diplomas in two.
You could earn more
Institution of Professional Engineers (IPENZ) research shows that amongst engineering graduates with a year’s work experience, BEng Tech graduates earn up to 10% more than university engineering graduates. The higher salary is credited to the increased competition for engineering technology graduates and the practical experience they have gained while studying.

Naomi New Zealand Diploma in Engineering At the moment, she’s working on the MacKays to Peka Peka Expressway on the Kapiti Coast – one of the major infrastructure projects underway in the region. She’s the utilities design team lead and work package manager, helping to divert services (such as waste-water, power and telecommunications) underneath the expressway and around structures. “If people are thinking about getting into engineering, there are fantastic opportunities. Things always need to be built, expanded or upgraded.”
For Naomi, an enquiring mind is key to being a successful engineer. “If you like problem-solving, and often think ‘why is that like that?’, then you’ve got the right mindset for engineering.” The WelTec graduate has been working at Beca as an engineering technician for two and a half years. In fact, she started the job straight after finishing her studies. “I completed my last exam at WelTec on a Friday and then started work the following Monday.”
There are jobs galore in the industry so it’s not a case of where you’re going to work when you come out, it’s where do you want to work, what do you want to do.
Naomi recently gained her New Zealand Diploma in Engineering Practice, giving her associate membership of the Institute of Professional Engineers New Zealand and making her a certified engineering technician. Naomi initially went to university, but found it wasn’t for her. She liked the fact that WelTec offered small classes and a practical approach to engineering. “It’s slightly more like a classroom where you feel like you can ask questions, whereas at a university with 300 people in a lecture, you don’t feel like you want to put your hand up and ask a question. It helps you understand it from start to finish because you can ask those questions along the way.” “It’s also quite practical, which solidifies the theory behind it. The lecturers will either take you out to do surveying – we did hours of surveying each week – or in geotech, we dug holes and had a look at different rock formations around the Wellington area, right through to using the hydraulics labs or crushing concrete to see its strength.”

Bachelor of Information Technology
Georgia Bachelor of Information Technology “What I didn’t expect when I started studying was the level of support that I got from my tutors. Having previously studied at tertiary level, I found that interactions with tutors were limited to the lecture theatre.”
Start: February and Level 7 July 2016 Length: 3 years, full-time Campus: Petone Entry criteria: NCEA Level 3 plus 10 literacy credits at Level 2 or 3, and Level 1 numeracy
Choose from majors in Networking, Programming, Software Engineering, and Information Assurance and Security. Or design your own.
I found WelTec tutors to be helpful and genuinely care about their students.
Majors Design your degree Customise your degree. Choose the subjects that most interest you. Networking Networking specialists are required to design, deploy optimise enterprise network infrastructure, cloud networks and virtualised environments. Courses are based on high visability brands such as Microsoft, Cisco, Alcatel Lucent. Students gain hands on experience of these widely used, high quality network components. Programming Programmers interpret business issues to create IT solutions using a range of codes or languages. Information Assurance and Security Security specialists are in high demand within government, commercial and banking sectors. Analyse and discover risks and potential vulnerabilities of business systems.
Georgia chose IT because she was keen to upskill and join the booming IT industry. “I had got to about as far as I could in my previous career and I guess you could say I was in a bit of a rut. I really did need a new challenge and something to shake things up a bit.” She decided to embark on a Bachelor of IT. Along the way, she was chosen for a cadetship opportunity at IT services firm Fronde. Georgia won the ANZ Award for Most Outstanding Female Graduate and got a job at Fronde – where she started as a graduate and now works as a project manager. “I always had an interest in IT and I decided that WelTec was where I wanted to go because it was a practical course and I knew that I needed something that I could actively combine knowledge and theory.”
Georgia, who specialised in Information Assurance and Security, says she learned a lot about databases, risk management and project management. “One of the best things was I got to do a project in my final year. That was a very real-world experience in itself and all of the skills that I picked up and put into use while doing that project have really paid off as they’re things I’ve needed to do in my day-to-day life now.” Georgia’s work at Fronde involves client and stakeholder management, dealing with risk and managing development work, among other things. “It’s interesting and you get to work on a bunch of very different clients so you might be working for government one moment and then for something in the private sector the next.”
