Want to return to education? Ready for a change of career? Thinking of returning to work?
Get where you want to be with Bridgepoint.
Bridgepoint is Unitec's range of Foundation Education vocational pathways. They are specially designed to bridge you into certificate, diploma or degree level study.
Whether you’re a school leaver or a career changer, Bridgepoint provides an introduction to the vocational skills and knowledge to progress to higher education or enter the workforce. Each programme is aligned with the Vocational Pathways initiative – a new framework that links foundation education with employment pathways. So you can be sure the skills you learn are relevant and needed by employers.
A pathway to the career you want
Each programme covers a wide range of subjects to give you plenty of options for what to study next. The courses you pick can pathway you towards all sorts of different careers, including nursing, early childhood education, construction, engineering, business, sport or design and visual arts.
Study at the level that’s right for you
Flexibility is really important, which is why we offer Bridgepoint programmes at different levels. Classes are small, with students from lots of different backgrounds and age groups who have similar goals to you.
Your tutors are there to guide you every step of the way. They’ll support you to develop the study skills, confidence and technical knowledge you need to return to education and improve your career opportunities.
But first we'll sit down with you and find out exactly what you want to achieve. And then we’ll work with you to select courses for a pathway that gets you on track for the future you want.
