NZ Certificate in Business ( Introduction to Team Leadership) – Level 3


Graduating from the NZ Certificate in Business Level 3, Introduction to Team Leadership in December
2022 and currently pursuing the NZ Diploma in Business Level 5, Leadership and Management has
been a rewarding journey for me.

The decision to study online was a no-brainer as it allowed me to seamlessly fit it around my work and
life schedule. Aspire2 Business Management Programmes stood out for multiple reasons, one of them
being the fees-free option. Upon reviewing the course content, I was interested in the comprehensive
and relevant nature of the program.

My experience with the tutors has been invaluable. The constructive feedback I received from them
continuously challenged me to think differently and grow as an individual.
Having the flexibility of no set timetables was a game-changer for me. I dedicated a couple of evenings
and a weekend day every week to my studies, which allowed me to stay on track and maintain a healthy
work-life-study balance.

Throughout my studies, I was surprised by the multitude of new skills I acquired. The content proved
immensely beneficial, and I was able to apply what I learned to real-life situations, enhancing my
interactions at work and beyond.

Completing these qualifications has filled me with a great sense of pride and achievement. Having
previously worked in management roles for nine years without formal certification, obtaining these
qualifications has been a significant milestone in my professional journey.

Without hesitation, I would recommend this programme to anyone seeking study opportunities. In fact,
I have already referred two colleagues at work to undertake the diploma, knowing that it will empower
them to grow their professional skillsets. To anyone considering embarking on this educational journey, I
say: seize the opportunity, embrace the challenge, and witness the transformative power of education in
your life. With Aspire2, the possibilities are endless, and the rewards are immeasurable.

Studying with Aspire2 has ignited a newfound excitement for education in me. I now firmly believe that
learning is a lifelong journey, and I am determined to keep going, continually expanding my knowledge
and skills.
