This certificate is an ideal start to degree-level study in education and social work. You’ll become familiar with the core concepts and academic skills necessary to step up into the Bachelor of Applied Social Sciences or a teaching degree.
The skills you’ll accumulate with this certificate will hold you in good stead for general entry-level employment roles in social sciences fields but will not provide the specific vocational skills required for social work or counseling roles.
Ingrid Foss, National Certificate in Mental Health and Addiction Support
Studying for her nursing degree was an “amazing journey” and one in a series for Ingrid Foss, a Hastings mother-of-five who graduated from EIT in March 2014. Launching into tertiary education, Ingrid had just enrolled for EIT’s National Certificate in Mental Health when she found she was expecting her youngest child, now aged six. With classmates tracking the progress of her pregnancy and the arrival of baby Chloe, she persevered to gain her qualification – and with flying colours.
Some of these programmes have been granted funding opportunities from the Ministry of Health and Mental Health Commission. Further details can be obtained from the programme coordinators.
