Career chats are an engaging way to learn more about NMIT and have any questions answered. There are multiple, flexible pathways available to learners to achieve their career goals, so we can get them on the right track.
Learners can discuss their goals, passions and strengths and align them to programmes at Te Pūkenga NMIT with one of our experienced and dedicated ākonga (student) liaisons.
They have all the information needed to help them plan their future.
Following her career chat, Nina Barbezat, a Whanganui-based high school teacher, plans to enrol in the Graduate Certificate in Career Development at Te Pūkenga NMIT. She found she can study both remotely and in her own time, so she can continue working while she upskills.
“I’m looking to future-proof my later years,” she said, “I don’t want to be in the classroom teaching when I’m 65.”
Nina already supports ākonga with career advice, using her vast experience and Google to learn as she goes, but she believes it is time to put some accredited theory behind her conversations.
“I’m looking forward to walking the walk, since I’m talking it.”
After discussing her work experience, Nina discovered she will be granted permission to enter the Level 7 graduate certificate, providing her with the learning experience she needs, rather than spending her time on concepts she is already familiar with.
Nina enjoyed the career chat as she was able to talk to a real person and accurately get her thoughts and questions out on the table.
“I loved the chat— it felt like I was talking to an old friend. I’m old school, so I don’t want to talk to AI,” she said.
Flexible study options are available in many of our programmes and our career advisors can help find the best way to fit study into life.
Book a phone conversation or a face-to-face meeting from our website homepage at either our Richmond, Nelson or Blenheim campuses. Conversations last 15-20 minutes with any follow-up information provided via email if needed.
A free career conversation can put you on the right path to meet your career goals.
