Have micro-credentials helped you get ahead?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder.

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

The Blenheim House & Garden Tours are on this Friday and Saturday. We are still desperately in need of more wonderful volunteers to help out, in support of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ! The tours take place on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of March.

To say thank you (heaps) for volunteering for the day, you can check out the amazing houses with a free ticket to the other tour day. So, it’s a fantastic opportunity to check out eight beautiful homes around Blenheim.

Volunteers help out with the following at a designated tour house:
• Assisting with registration in the morning
• Putting up signage
• Being stationed around the house to help move people along to avoid congestion
• Ongoing monitoring of wristbands.
• Ensuring people use their shoe bags and don’t leave shoes at the door

We would really appreciate it if could help us by sharing this volunteering opportunity with family and friends! Alternatively if you know of any groups you think may be interested – let me know and I will get in touch with them 😊

If you're interested or want to find out more details please email us on volunteer@bcf.org.nz or phone us on 0508 105 105.

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!

Interested? Call 03-577-9388, email vm@volunteermarlborough.org.nz, or apply online at marl.volunteermatch.org.nz...

More info:
We’re currently looking for volunteers to help with the tours. Volunteers will be stationed at each of the houses (from 8:30am - 4pm) helping with security, car parking, and managing the flow of people visiting.
The tour gives people the opportunity to view 8 beautiful, handpicked homes and gardens.
As a thank you for your time and assistance, you’ll be provided with a copy of the latest NZ House & Garden magazine, and a ticket to visit the rest of the houses on the tour. Volunteers will receive a free full day ticket (on the other day of the tour in Blenheim).
Volunteers must be over 18 years of age.
As the charity partner of the event, the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ receives $220,000 in cash and free advertising, this goes a long way to help Kiwis affected by breast cancer.
