Jessie Broad, National Certificate in Animal Care Student

Growing up on farms, vet nurse Jessie Broad has always been involved with animals.

“We had cattle, sheep, dogs, cats, dogs and horses,” the 21-year-old says of her parents’ farm at Mangaorapa in Central Hawke’s Bay.  “All we lacked was a pig and a goat, but the neighbour had those.”

Halfway through her seventh form year as a Napier Girls’ High School boarder, Jessie’s father suggested vet nursing as a career.  She attended an EIT Open Day and just three weeks after finishing school, she was studying for the National Certificate in Animal Care.

Cameron Nepe

The forestry industry has been good to EIT Tairawhiti tutor Cameron Nepe.

“It’s a good option for people to take,” he says. “It’s a full time job, not seasonal, and offers great career pathways that allow people to go into anything from machine operation, to crew management, and supervisory roles in crews.”

Cameron Nepe, who joined EIT Tairawhiti early in 2012 and holds a degree in iwi environmental management and a diploma in forest management, also works alongside the forestry industry training organisation FITEC.
