Waiariki partners with SUTI to offer more education to more people

Waiariki Institute of Technology and Skills Update Training Institute (SUTI) have partnered together to provide students in outlying rural areas further opportunities for training and education.

“Skills Update Training Institute is a well-respected education provider and has a good reputation. We are happy and confident in this partnership and know SUTI will uphold Waiariki standards,” says Dr Clarke Raymond, director of Waiariki’s Centre for Business, Research and Enterprise.

The additional regions will include Opotiki, Kawerau, Te Kuiti, Taumarunui and Turangi. Waiariki will also be increasing the number of programmes available in Taupo.

“The institute is committed to providing education and training for the whole Waiariki region. This partnership enables us to reach a larger cohort of students and gives students greater accessibility to different courses,” says Dr Raymond.

The qualifications offered include the Level 4 Certificate in Smart Study, the National Certificate in Health, Disability and Aged Support (Level 3), Level 3 Certificate in Business Administration and the Level 3 Short Award in Applied Vocational Skills which offers specialist strands in agriculture, construction related trades, and horticulture.

The courses provide progressive pathways to a range of programmes offered by Waiariki. They are an ideal way to try out different subjects and areas of interest, and provide students with valuable work-related knowledge and skills.
