KIM ROGERS - NEW ZEALAND DIPLOMA IN BUSINESS 
My dream was to upskill and obtain a tertiary qualification that provided a solid platform for a career in the business finance industry.  This led me to WITT.  With fantastic family support I embarked on the most amazing journery that enriched my life.  Together with the comibnation of a highly skilled and inspiring WITT staff, a diverse student culture, an engaging learning environment, hard work and a never give up attitude, the dream became a reality.  It truly is the most empowering experience and I hihgly recommend it.

AIMEE MATOE  - CERTIFICATE IN HAIRDRESSING
I came to WITT in 2013 to complete my levels 1 & 2 and then gained certificates in Business Administration and Computing Level 3 and Make-up Artistry. From there I completed my first year of hairdressing at WITT. I competed in the Taranaki regional competitions and placed fourth in the novice section, which allowed me to compete at the NZARH Supreme Awards in Auckland where I placed third. I was then offered an apprenticeship with Be Ba Bo. I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of the loving tutors, new friends I made and the WITT’s support network. 

Aimee now works at BeBaBo Hair Studio.


 

NICOLA SIMPSON - BACHELOR OF SOCIAL WORK
When volunteering at 'Springboard' an organisation which works with at-risk youth and children north of Auckland, I would say to people "this would be my dream job".  They then encouraged me to study a Bachelor of Social Work as it would give me a greater professional capacity for future roles.  I then moved back to Taranaki where I am originally from and enrolled at WITT.  This degree has given me greater knowledge and understanding of how to work with people of all ages and backgrounds.  I am now a Community Support Ocordinator at CCS Disability Action.  I am loving working with children, families, youth and adults supporting them to reach their goals and aspirations.  I am stoked in knowing that this degree has given me broad opportunities to work in any field of work I choose in the future.  

Nicola is now working at CCS Disability Action.


 

CORBIN FRASER - CERTIFICIATE IN ELECTRICAL SKILLS
I have always been a hands on practical person and rather than go to university I decided to go to WITT and enrolled to study the Certificate in Electrical Skills.  I found I enjoyed the programme and the positive learning environment provided at WITT.  Along wtih my programme I obtained practical work experience with an electrical business and at the end of my programme I had been offered full time employment with NPE - TECH as an Electrical Apprentice.  

Corbin is now working at NPE - TECH.
