I bunked. I didn't like the learning there. I didn't connect with anyone. I had no NCEA." "When I looked at the courses here, I could see they were all laid out in steps that I could begin without having to move away from home. So I started with the foundation step." "They treat you like adults here and the tutors come to your desk to help. It's like having an aunty or an uncle. When I got Level 3 it was the first thing I had ever achieved. I celebrated like it was Christmas!!" Maths has been the biggest challenge for Renee. "I've always hated it, but I passed. The class is like a family and we lift each other up."
