A change in direction

In early 2021 the Y in Southland decided to shift its education focus to short, vocational courses that offer qualifications and opportunities to progress career pathways in the region.

We have started this by working alongside Splash Palace and Invercargill City Council to introduce a free pool lifeguard practising certificate course, which also includes employability components.

With NCEA credits, qualifications and opportunities for direct employment, this programme is indicative of the future education focus of the Y.

Watch this space as we add more offerings.
