How To Choose A Course

At Capital Training

We are committed to providing you with a learning experience that meets and exceeds your expectations, whatever your starting point and aspirations. In order to do that we employ a “right learner, right course, right support” ethos.

Choosing the right course for you is essential to your success. To help you choose the right study programme, it is important that you spend some time looking at options and ensuring you’re making the right choices before you enrol. Here are some steps that you may consider:
  • Read through the information on our website about the different courses on offer (under the “Courses” tab)
  • Think about your current interests, skills and abilities. What have you enjoyed before? What have you struggled with? What sort of job might you like to end up in? Do any of courses stand out to you as something that might suit you?
  • See what sort of career might suit you here: Occupation Outlook 2017
  • Check that you meet the eligibility requirements listed for that course.
  • Check your availability – are you able to study full-time or do you need a part-time option.
  • Come and see us. Meet the teaching team, meet your fellow learners, chat to us. We can help you decide on a course if you are unsure.

As A Rule Of Thumb

If you don’t already hold a qualification, you will start on our Level 1 Foundation Skills programme or on our literacy and numeracy programme (if you are out on the Kapiti Coast). If you already hold NCEA1 you can choose which vocational pathway you would like to follow from our range of level 2 options.

For those of you who have your NCEA2, or another level 2 qualification, then our Level 3 Certificate in Business Administration and Technology may be right for you – this will also enable you to get your NCEA3.
