Our supported learning programmes are ideal for adults and mature school leavers with a learning difficulty or disability. Our passionate and caring supported learning team will help you meet your goals and aspirations so you can shift into further education or paid employment in an area that interests you.
You’ll work on setting goals for the future, and develop important social, communication, computer, numeracy, and literacy skills. Plus, 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.
Our programmes are fees-free to all New Zealand citizens and permanent residents under the age of 25. If you're over the age of 25 and are on the Supported Living Allowance, you may be eligible for the Training Incentive Allowance (TIA) through Work and Income New Zealand (WINZ).

If you want more information, you're welcome to join Unitec's Supported Learning team for one of our Talk and Tour afternoons.
These sessions are for students, their families, support people, teachers, and transition specialists to find out more about our Supported Learning programmes and to take a brief tour of our Mt Albert campus.
