WHY SKILL NEW ZEALAND?
Skill New Zealand’s dynamic programmes are designed with the individual learning needs of our students at the forefront, which ensures that our learners' personal expectations are met. This is supported by small and fully resourced classrooms that provide a nurturing, genuine and intimate environment for students to be seen and heard. Our selection of caring and knowledgeable tutors have a wealth of lived and learned experience, and genuinely care about helping their students thrive and succeed, both in class and beyond life at Skill New Zealand.
Integrity, creativity, courage, passion and acceptance are Skill New Zealand’s core values. We are committed to upholding these values by implementing them in everything that we do.
We have communal study spaces and lunchrooms on campus that bridge learners from across Skill New Zealand and encourage them to freely interact with one another outside of class time.
Skill New Zealand’s newly renovated and modern campus location is social, convenient and professional. Located above the Manukau City Public Library and right next to Westfield Manukau City, students are only minutes away from a wide range of amenities. Skill New Zealand is also situated next to Manukau’s main bus depot and train station which makes transport accessibility simple.
