Meet Naida. A student who started at NZIE whilst juggling a full-time role. She saw the demand for digital marketing skills and dedicated two years to learning and upskilling. Naida has come a long way and overcome many obstacles. In addition to gaining valuable skills and experience through juggling multiple targets, goals and assessments.

Adapted Video Transcript

Before NZIE I was in customer service and sales roles. That was when I realised, I was missing out on an area that I knew was in demand – Digital Marketing. I knew that this was something that I would be able to achieve and grow in. 

After doing the digital marketing course, I am able to now focus on the areas that I’m really interested in. For example, I found that I really wanted to run my own online shopping store. At this stage right now I’m currently doing everything that I can to set myself up. 

 “Studying at NZIE was definitely a challenge, with working full time and studying part time but it was achievable!” 

 Studying and working at the same time was achievable. As long as I set myself a good structure then I could implement my targets and assessments that were due. Thankfully, it was good, and I really enjoyed it. More importantly there was a lot that I learnt. In addition, a lot of skillsets that I can now build on from too. 

To summarise  

I would recommend NZIE and the reason being is that you’re learning from amazing tutors. Moreover, the way that the support is at NZIE has been amazing too. 

In short: 

“As long as you have a goal, you know what you want to do and you aim for that goal, NZIE can do that for you.”
