Motueka High School
Renee is interested in engineering but wanted something practical, so when the Civil Infrastructure programme was suggested she decided to give it go. “I really like that you can work at your own pace and that it’s not all classroom stuff. When we visit sites it’s interesting seeing how they actually do things, rather than just driving past in your car.”
Renee was particularly interested to find out how complicated the traffic management job was. “It’s not just randomly putting out cones, there are specific plans.” Renee appreciates the way the course is run and has found the tutor both entertaining and very good at explaining things. “He is really interested in what we want to do”.
Renee thinks the course is an excellent option for student who aren’t sure what they want to do in the future, but who are interested in a trade. “You get a head-start on other people if you decide you do really want to do a trade and get a job.”
