The Toolkit aims to provide Year 7-13 students with the opportunity to build their financial capability, learn how NZ’s political system works and to develop key workplace skills and competencies. It was created to inform students in their choices after they leave school, whether that’s further education and training or a career path. But it’s also a great resource for career specialists, providing valuable information for students facing too many options – helping them to be more directed and focused.
