Employment Placement Services

Employment Placement Services is delivered for up to 20 weeks at our Hamilton Campus. We actively assist students in finding a job that will closely match their interests and skills. We take the time to get to know our students better, so we can confidently promote them to a prospective employer.

We help transition students into employment and keep in touch with them for up to 6 months. We believe that “Changing lives through learning” is not only about getting a job, it’s also about getting ahead. We help equip students with the tools needed to get ahead, thrive, and succeed.

Students who join our Employment Placement Services programme can gain industry certificates, work experience, their NZ drivers licences, references for their CV, and a boost in their confidence!

Students learn a variety of important skills and knowledge that will help them in their new job, such as work routines and what employers want from their employees, good work ethics and habits, and an understanding of barriers and how to overcome them. Other supports we provide for students include travel allowance, dressing for interviews, interview clothing for men, upskilling for industry-specific certificates e.g. barista, site safe, first aid, driving and many more...
