NZQA Approved Programmes leading to

2861 - New Zealand Certificate in Foundation Skills Level 1

2853 - New Zealand Certificate in Skills for Living for Supported Learners


South Pacific Educational Courses is an organisation driven by a passion to make a difference to

students who are struggling to achieve, or who are not reaching their full potential. We have seen

how this personalised approach to learning can produce amazing results, not just a measurement of

credits, but of personal growth and a demonstration of increased self management, self esteem

and a sense of self worth.

Employers are strongly indicating that young people are leaving school with under developed

competencies needed for work.  This programme and the new qualifications are designed to meet

the needs of the future generation and indeed workforce.

Carolyn Baines (Director) Curriculum Developer & Quality Assurance Manager

Hello and welcome to the SPEC website.  

 The SPEC programmes are NZQA approved for two New Zealand qualifications that have a focus on developing competencies, and the skills needed for work and/or further learning.  This ‘future focused’ personalised learning programme has

proven successful results for students who require an alternative approach to learning.

The ethos and principles of our programmes directly link to the New Zealand curriculum’s vision for Directions for Learning;  “Young people who will be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners”.

Click the NZQA link (right) to find out more about the qualifications and click NZ Qualification  (above) to find out more about our programmes.

The programmes we offer are from primary through to high school and beyond, and prepare young people for work and the challenges of the 21st century.   NEWS!   We also have started to work with the Home School sector.
