FAQ'S

Information Technology

Absolutely. All of our qualifications are accredited and approved through the New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) and are internationally recognised.

We have two values that we use to guide our decisions:

God Honouring (He whakahonore i te Atua) 

  • Ministry - wherever, whenever be like Jesus
  • Integrity - be true to our word, and do what is morally right
  • Stewardship - future focussed, managing and investing wisely

Client Focussed (He manaaki i te tangata)

  • Service - serve, respect and value our clients
  • Innovation - constant improvement
  • Excellence - excel in all that we do

We strongly recommend that you bring your own device. Bringing your own device allows you to continue to work when you are away from the college, on the projects and self-directed aspects related to the course. If bringing your own device is problematic let us know before you start, and we'll see what we can arrange for you in terms of providing a desktop PC.

Some students may wish to exit after completing the first year of the 2 year New Zealand Diploma in Software Development (Level 6), and gain the New Zealand Diploma in Web Development and Design (Level 5). In order to gain full-stack development skills, we would strongly encourage you to complete both years of the New Zealand Diploma in Software Development (Level 6) qualification. The reason we encourage this 2 year journey of study is because the job prospects for Software Developers is greater than Web Developers. According to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (http://occupationoutlook.mbie.govt.nz/manufacturing-and-technology/software-developers/), Software Developers are in higher demand than web developers.
