Want to find out how to become an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer

Then come along on Monday 3 July at lunchtime to the Library Seminar Room where a speaker from Air New Zealand will talk about the pathway into this career. It basically involves a 36 week course at the Air New Zealand Aviation Institute in Christchurch gaining the New Zealand Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering and then you apply for an apprenticeship where you will be paid to complete the remainder of your aircraft tradesman training. You can access student loans and allowances for this course. So come along on Monday and ask your questions.  Put it in your electronic diary now.

Interested in an Environmentally oriented career?

Then come along at lunchtime on Monday 22 May to the Green Room at 12.45pm (lunch) and hear guest speaker, Lan Pham, talk about her career so far. Lan is a freshwater ecologist and she worked for DOC for a number of years before going to Raoul Island to do more conservation work. Her entire campaign when she was running for ECan was done from the island, as she only arrived back a week before the local elections, but she still ended up being the highest polling candidate. She’s absolutely brilliant as she’s young, passionate and incredibly engaging. See you there.
