Preparing for the future

Education providers focus on academic success but also want to ensure students leave prepared for their next step, whether that’s moving onto further education or into the workforce.

New Zealand schools have a strong digital and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focus. And our tertiary providers have great relationships with local businesses and the government sector, which leads to internships and work experience and a high employment rate of recent graduates.
