"I had the best opportunity to join Skill NZ, that has supported my career and life. I enjoyed my evening classes, my lovely tutor, admin, and management. They helped me through all the hardship through Covid-19. I was working as a home-based childcare educator, but now I have a job in a retirement village as a HCA. I am so proud of myself. Keep up the hard work Skill NZ."
