You’ll work through setting goals for the future, develop important work skills like social and communication skills, computer skills, and numeracy and literacy. You'll learn more about New Zealand's support services and health and welfare issues.

All this will build your confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem so you can work, live and travel independently.
