Jess had looked after cousins and neighbours for years. She was keen to get a formal qualification & had always liked children. It was a good idea to study something she had a real passion for. When she graduated Tinies nanny agency in Auckland were particularly impressed and put her forward for a job in Greece. Within 2 months she was employed as a nanny in Athens!

Rebecca graduated from the Academy and immediately scored a dream job on a luxury cruise liner sailing the Pacific and working with teenagers. Since then she’s headed to London where she got a great job looking after a baby and a two year-old for a well-off British family. She said the two year old is ‘the sweetest thing’. The work is hard but very rewarding. “Weekends are fun.. have done a lot of sightseeing with my friends and love London!”

Helena left school before the end of sixth form and was working in a pizza outlet when she saw our ad. She knew she enjoyed working with the children at her local Maori culture group so she came and did our Level 3 course. After finishing it she worked as a nanny while she completed Level 5. This gained her entry to Waikato University. Since graduating at Waikato she is now working there as a lecturer.

David sometimes found being the only male out of 24 students a challenge but he was quickly accepted. After graduating he got a great job working for a family in the entertainment industry.
