Vocational & Higher Learning

We deliver the latest skills, the most industry-relevant qualifications and the very best employment support – it’s our job to ensure every one of our students graduates work-ready and world-ready.

Vocational student

Work-ready, world-ready

At New Education Group, we will prepare you for a rewarding career in your chosen field. By working in partnership with industry leaders, we ensure our programmes will equip you with the skills and knowledge to take you into the future.

  • Careers in booming industries

    New Education Group concentrates on booming industries because that’s where the jobs are. We will prepare you for a career in creative industries, information technology (IT), tourism, hospitality, trades, business or services.

    By working closely with our industry partners we ensure you’re learning exactly what you need to enter the industry of your choice – and that you’re a step ahead of the competition.

  • Hands-on training

    We have 23 campuses across New Zealand, all of them top-rated Category 1. Hands-on training is a key part of our programmes – you can develop your skills in our specialist campus facilities, then practice them in the workplace through internships with our industry partners.

  • Fit-for-purpose facilities

    Our specialist campuses maintain first-class, modern facilities, perfect for learning a specialist skill, industry or trade. Each facility is maintained and adapted to meet changing industry standards, ensuring that when you graduate, your skills are industry-ready.

    You can develop and practice your skills in our bars, restaurants and commercial kitchens, on-site retail shops or construction workshops. You might work in our 3D graphics suites and green screen rooms; in a Boeing 747 service trainer or a full Boeing 737 aircraft cabin trainer.

  • Industry-expert tutors

    When you choose a new career, wouldn’t you rather learn from someone with hands-on experience and networks in your chosen industry? Our tutors are highly qualified in – and some still work in – the industries they teach. You can be sure they’re up to date and they know exactly what employers need.

  • Flexible vocational courses

    Our courses are designed to be flexible so you can design your study schedule to suit your life.

    If you’re looking for a career change, we offer a wide range of diploma or degree qualifications. However fast or slow you want to go, you have the power to decide your future.

    If you left school early, our entry level youth courses can help bring you up to speed before moving on to your chosen career.

    Find the right course for you
  • Personal attention

    Whether you’re taking a short course, certificate, diploma, or a degree, at New Education Group you’ll be in a small class. That means your tutor has the time to give you the personal attention and encouragement you need to succeed.

Getting a job

We place 80 percent of our students every year into employment or higher learning, and are the go-to training group for many of New Zealand’s top employers.

Matching our students with the right employer takes knowledge, skills and experience. Our college staff work closely with top employers and industry organisations, to help you launch your career.
