Skills & Qualifications

We will help you gain the skills, qualifications and pathway to get to where you want to go.

Practice Makes Perfect
At ComCol all of our programmes are practical and vocationally focused.  Every day you will be learning real skills that you will be able to build on with further training or take with you into a job.  For example, if you are on a hospitality programme you will have constant opportunities to practise preparing and serving food and coffee.  If you are on a sport programme, you will gain skills around coaching or fitness and then hone these skills through practising on others.

Qualifications
Apart from our Job Connection Programmes, which focus solely on learning skills to help gain employment, all of our other programmes involve assessment and offer the opportunity to gain qualifications.  These qualifications vary depending on the type and length of the programme, and the pace with which you learn. If you click on any programme that we offer at our Colleges you will see the qualifications that are offered - whether it be NCEA Level 1 and 2 or vocational National Certificates at levels 1-4.
