Te Pākaro a Ihenga: Faculty of Health, Education and Humanities Career Guides
Teaching is a profession that allows you to work in an environment where you can really make a difference. It is a challenging and yet rewarding career, where no two days are the same.
Nursing is one of the fundamental professions in healthcare throughout the world and can be a rewarding career both personally and professionally. After at least five years working as an RN, you may be able to progress to the positions of senior nurse or nurse manager and earn higher wages. Nurses often specialise in areas such as aged care, community health, critical care and emergency, mental health, nurse practitioner, perioperative, Plunket nurse, or practice nurse.
If you’ve left secondary school not long ago and you’re ready to begin tertiary study but not sure if you have the necessary skills to study the qualification you want, the Certificate in vocational Skills (Introductory) and Certificate in vocational Skills provide students with skills, experience and knowledge to become work ready or to progress onto higher qualifications. If it has been a while since you last studied at tertiary level, or you have never studied before at tertiary level, a great way to get started is to enrol on the one semester Certificate in Smart Study to prepare you for successful, enjoyable study toward a diploma or degree. You will learn writing and study skills and participate in two electives depending on what you would like to study next.
Our Master of Applied Professional Studies offers four specialist professional pathways in vulnerable peoples, infection prevention and control, mentoring and leadership, and adult teaching.
