advancing your education to the next level

Going on to further study is the pathway that some students choose.  If you are the first in your family to carry on into Tertiary study you might want a helping hand, and if you are unsure of what, where and how you should plan your Tertiary study then this programme is perfect for you.

Tertiary study is a step up in challenge from High School, each year of Tertiary study becomes more challenging as you head towards your graduation goal.  Our Tertiary-Ready programme helps you to prepare for all that is ahead of you.  


You can access the coaching programme at your own pace & place. We recommend this programme for girls in their senior years of High School as they make the Tertiary choices, and we are here to help.

Tertiary-Ready Program Content

There are 20 self coaching units in the Tertiary-Ready program, these include: 


Where and what to study

The options are sometimes overwhelming, choosing your Tertiary Institution and the course of study you will undertake is really important to get right.  Our modules on the selection process will help to guide you.


The importance of good habits

Once you are on your own your habits for self care, study and wellbeing will be critical to your success; our modules on time management and habit formation will help to reduce student anxiety.


Financial Wisdom

Since you are investing in your education it's important to understand what that investment is costing and how you will manage during and after your study.  Our financial management module will help to prepare for the years ahead.   We assist in scholarship applications and recommend this is identified in year 12 in NZ.



Students will learn techniques to help them focus better, relax when they need to and avoid judging themselves and others, rather; letting things be, and accepting the things we cannot change.


Campus Life

We encourage self care behaviours and have a module on the essential elements of caring for yourself when away from home.  This includes accessing medical services and understanding the responsibilities of taking care of your health.

Levels of Academia

If you want to go further into a Tertiary career then you'll need to know about the levels of Academia, we make this easy to understand in our Postgraduate options module.
