New Zealand Certificate in Study and Employment Pathways (Level 4) (Health Science)
In July 2023, I successfully completed NCNZ’s (now called Aspire2 Health & Wellbeing) Level 4 Health Science certificate and began my journey into the Level 5 Diploma in Health & Wellness, graduating with a newfound confidence and a comprehensive understanding of human health and wellness. Balancing education with work and family commitments required a flexible learning format, and A2HW’s online program emerged as the perfect solution.
My decision to pursue this program was the convenience of online learning. Balancing professional responsibilities with family life required a study format that could easily fit into my existing schedule. A2HW’s online platform provided the perfect solution, allowing me to access course materials and complete assignments at my own pace, during evenings and weekends.
Choosing Aspire2 Health & Wellbeing was further cemented by positive recommendations from both friends and family. They consistently praised the program’s supportive environment and the flexibility offered by distance learning.
Throughout my studies, the support structure at A2HW consistently impressed me. Communication channels were open and responsive, readily addressing any issues that arose. This sense of support instilled confidence and enabled me to navigate any challenges encountered along the way.
One of the program’s greatest strengths was the flexibility in scheduling. Unlike traditional academic programs, A2HW provided a clear outline of all modules, allowing me to plan my studies efficiently. This transparency empowered me to utilise free time effectively, tackling modules ahead of schedule and ensuring completion within my personal timeframe.
While the program equipped me with a wealth of new knowledge and skills, I was most surprised by the practical application of this information within my professional domain. My new found knowledge facilitated insightful conversations with medical professionals. I found myself understanding medical terminology more readily and developed a deeper appreciation for the intricate workings of the human body.
Although certain assignments presented hurdles, I found the challenge to be rewarding. A2HW’s emphasis on independent research equipped me with the necessary tools to navigate diverse information sources and extract reliable knowledge. The instructors provided constructive feedback, guiding me towards a deeper understanding.
Completing this program filled me with a sense of achievement. There were moments when doubts crept in, but ultimately, persevering through these challenges and reaching the finish line cemented my confidence and self-reliance. The diploma serves as a tangible reminder of my dedication.
