Learning Plans

At Community Colleges we value your existing skills and experience and work with you to develop a learning pathway.  

Prior Learning
To help us focus your training on your individual needs, we look at your levels of learning before you commence a programme. We recognise your prior achievements and credit transfers from your NZQA Record of Learning. If you have credits for units, you are still able to review or further practise these skills if you wish.  To receive an early assessment, you must supply evidence of prior learning that you can meet the required outcomes.

Individual Learning Planning
As everyone's circumstances are different, an individual learning plan is developed for each student, setting goals for a rewarding and successful future.  These goals will help you gain skills that are in demand by employers, and qualifications that are nationally recognised or will help you into further education.  Your learning plan and goals are regularly reviewed to encourage and enhance your progress. 

If you are serious about reaching your goals, then we are serious about helping you achieve them!
