What makes Swivel special

We provide personalised, strength-focused career guidance for young learners. We help students learn strategies to plan their education and career pathways. Our programmes will equip kiwi students with a strong sense of competence and integral values that adhere to the New Zealand education curriculum and Te Marautanga Aotearoa.

We mentor students and personalise their learning and career planning, while making more meaningful connections with other students and their Whānau. The programmes and workshops at Swivel Careers complement the students’ learning in schools and provide them with essential skills to think outside the box.

Bridging the gap between school, study, and the workforce

Our experienced career coaches are passionate about what they do and are committed to helping students find career paths they love. Our programmes help bridge the gap between school, further study and the workforce giving the learners a holistic view of who they are, and which careers may suit them.
