Employment Placement Services

Looking for a job? We can help you! We've placed hundreds of people into employment, and we can do the same for you!

The Employment Placement Services  (known as Train for Work) programme is delivered for up to 20 weeks, at our Hamilton Campus. We actively assist in finding a job that will closely match your interest and skills. We take the time to know you better, so we can confidently promote you to a prospective employer.

We help transition you into employment and keep in touch with you 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. It isn't just about surviving; it's also about thriving. We help equip you with the tools needed to get ahead, thrive, and succeed. Small successes lead to big successes. Small steps are pathways to success. Our programme will be delivered in a way that matches the client’s needs. We can be working in a group/ team, one-on-one coaching and mentoring, on-line / distance learning or face to face.

When you join our Employment Placement Services (EPS) programme, you can gain industry certificates and work experience, your NZ Drivers licences, references for your CV, and a boost in your confidence!

You will learn a variety of important skills and knowledge that will help you in your 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, grooming services for men, upskilling for industry-specific certificates e.g. barista, site safe, first aid, driving and many more...
