The New Zealand School of Education: Where exciting, educational experiences serve to transform lives and deliver best in class employment outcomes.

Embracing culture, ideas, diversity and difference NZSE’s thought leaders in their field seek to mentor and guide students to understand and be prepared for life and work in a multicultural world.  NZSE’s role is to help you discover your potential; with small classes, outstanding student support and individually tailored literacy, numeracy and English language plans we coach you to success.

With strongly practically based programmes, students are encouraged to experience study through hands on experimentation, trial and error.  Whether that be through pulling a computer to pieces and reassembling it as part of a National Diploma in IT Support Level 5 or submitting work to an industry leading creative agency as part of their Level 7 Diploma in Design internship, the experiences you will have at NZSE will shape and define you.

Students gain internationally recognised qualifications whilst creating global networks and friendships as they study.  Direct pathways into degree programmes at AUT University, Unitec and Southern Cross University (Australia) demonstrate the high value the educational and employment sector place on qualifications from NZSE.

Outstanding relationships and a number of established internships with key industry players mean students are exposed to their future work places and potential employers whilst studying.

Empowering each student to define their goals, whether further study or employment, our success is defined by our student’s success. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to the NZSE.
