NZ Welding School (part of Aspire2) is a private training establishment with fully-equipped campuses in Auckland and Rotorua. The welding programmes, having a high practical content, are delivered by experienced tutors in an environment modelled on an industry workshop supported by classroom teaching. The school also offers a computer-aided design programme which is a mix of face-to-face block courses and distance learning. The students gain recognised skills, knowledge and attitudes that are demanded in the labour market. Student support coordinators and teachers guarantee that all students receive necessary support and assistance during the whole period of study.
