New Zealand Certificate in Study and Career Preparation (Level 4)
I was 17, fresh out of school, when I started the Career Prep course. I was not really thinking about what could be the outcome – I was just doing it because my mum wanted me to. But it opened me up to the idea of studying for a degree. It showed me what my pathway could be. It opened my eyes to different ideas, new possibilities and potential careers I had never considered.
That six-month course has given me options, options I wouldn’t have thought about before. So now I’ve got a plan: I’m now in my first year of a Bachelor of Humanities (BHUM). After completing my BHUM I will do a one-year teacher degree and become a primary teacher, and eventually become a secondary school PE teacher.
This is a good place to learn. I feel like I have the freedom to ask questions. I’ve been studying indigenous studies and policy, learning our history – learning heaps of new things that we never learnt at school. It’s opened me up to the world.
