Youth Guarantee Programmes
Because of the Government's targets, ALL Level 1 and 2 certificates at tertiary institutions are FREE. This is up to the age of 25.
There are also a number of qualifications at Level 3 which are fully funded. These Youth Guarantee placements are limited in number and students have to apply for a funded place and/or have an interview. Youth Guarantee places are generally vocational in nature and are usually for students who do not have NCEA Level 2 (There are some exceptions). Most of these courses will require students to have basic literacy and numeracy (Level 1), however some places do not require any formal qualifications. Most Youth Guarantee places include travel costs and full fees paid. Students are unable to access Student Loans for these programmes.
