"Studying at Aspire2 International was the ideal pathway into becoming a Registered Nurse here in New Zealand. I had total support from the staff and teachers at all times. Studying in a multicultural environment widened my perspective on life and helped me grow as a person. Aspire2 Work has friendly staff and counsellors who go the extra mile for their students."
"Learning to control a remote control car with C language for my final project was a definite highlight. During my studies I worked part-time as a Cable Technician and received a lot of career support from the Aspire2 Work team. They helped me with a C.V. and even got me an internship at an electronics company - and that started my career."
"I have always wanted to be an Electronics Engineer. Studying at Aspire2 International helped me build my knowledge, gave me hands-on experience with electronic tools, and taught me about working in the electronics industry in New Zealand. They helped me get a 3 month internship and that experience helped me get my current role at PowerShield Solutions. Aspire2 jump-started my career."
