What can I do after the MIT Trades Academy?

After successfully completing the one year MIT Trades Academy programme, you will have achieved at least NCEA level 2 at school and have a partial completion of a National Certificate from MIT.

You can then choose various options, but here are some ideas:

  • Return to school to complete Year 13 and NCEA Level 3
  • Go into full-time study at MIT (explore our free fee options)
  • Pathway into employment with further training on the job
  • Return to the Trades Academy to study more in your vocational area or explore another vocational area (for 2016 courses at level 3 are planned)

To find out the best option for you, the following can help:

  • Talk to the careers advisor and/or teachers at your school
  • Talk to the Trades Academy staff or MIT's Careers Centre
  • Visit the rest of MIT's website for further study options
