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.
Davinia Wainohu, Bachelor of Applied Social Sciences Graduate
Social Work gave me the opportunity to challenge systems that oppress us from being the best that we can be. This qualification means a sense of achievement, an inspiration to my whanau that with their support all things are possible. The first step is always the hardest, but with an awesome choice of study programmes, good facilities and high quality, supportive tutors – EIT is the place to be – the world is your oyster!!
