Ultimate 2.0

Ultimate 2.0 is designed for students continuing from Ultimate, or 16-19 year olds who may already have NCEA Level 1 and are looking for a programme that will provide them with an NZ Certificate in Foundation Skills (Level 2), valuable life skills, employment skills, and a look into the different career and study options out there.

Like Ultimate, Ultimate 2.0 also includes further career and study tasters to help students decide what career they may want to work towards and further learning they can take to get there. These career tasters vary between campuses, but may include business technology, barista training, early childhood skills and much more! They will also have the option to earn their learner drivers licence, restricted licence or forklift licence. There is a focus on generic business and technology knowledge, as the skills gained are very useful for a wide variety of higher-level study and employment opportunities.

Students who enrol will be given an individual learning plan to assist them in achieving credits towards NCEA 1 or 2. Students who complete both levels of Ultimate can finish with two Foundation Skills qualifications. Upon completion. Upon completion of our Ultimate programmes, students can pathway onto higher study with us. The New Zealand Certificate in Business (Administration and Technology) (Level 3) is a direct pathway for this programme, as students will have completed a programme taster and several units around the topic of business technology. Successful graduates of Ultimate 2.0 may also meet the requirements for some Level 5 programmes. Graduates looking for employment can move into entry-level work involving customer service or administration.
