Inspiration for the new week

Inspiration for the new week

Here is some inspiration for the upcoming, short (yay!) week.  Sometimes it can be hard to move on from the weekend and get enthused for the new week, going back to class or work, however it is our mind that will probably dictate how good our week ends up being. It is a new week, it starts afresh so that you can achieve anything that you put off last week or didn’t get to finish.  So just start, make this week better than the last by putting your mind to creating the...

When is it too late to improve your skills in Math and English?

When is it too late to improve your skills in Math and English?

Never.  And how long should you wait before getting help?  Another day is too long.  The impact of having low literacy and numeracy levels is far reaching and significant.  From making daily life difficult, to decreasing self-worth and confidence, the effects on an individual, their whanau, and the greater community can be debilitating.    However as people age, it gets harder to ask for help, and with a lack of confidence many people believe that they can n...

NCEA results not what you hoped for?  What now?

NCEA results not what you hoped for? What now?

The National Educational Achievement Certificate (NCEA) results have now been made known across New Zealand.  For many the results are not as good as they would have hoped for, and they have not achieved a certificate.  This can be incredibly disappointing given that NCEA level 2 is now a requirement for most employment, and for gaining further qualifications.  However all is not lost.  At providers like Regent Training Centre, you can use the credits that you did achi...

How do you choose what to study?

How do you choose what to study?

Should you go for a course where you think the money will be at the end?  Or should you do something that you love and hope that you will make enough money?  It’s just such a shame that we have to make massive decisions like this while we are still so young.  No one wants to get stuck in a job for a long time that they don’t enjoy, and at the same time we need to make money to live and to enjoy nice things.   Often when you are looking for a j...
