Ignite Colleges is owned and managed by three New Zealanders with more than 30 years’ experience in the tertiary education sector. We have run large colleges in Auckland and Hamilton. We know what it takes to run a high quality, employment focussed college that builds students’ confidence in their natural abilities and encourages them to raise their aspirations for their futures.
Our Vision for this college is: To develop the highest performing, inspirational tertiary college in South Auckland, that offers programmes of study that lead to strong employment opportunities and a brighter and fulfilling future for our students and their families.
We are creating a campus that has leading edge facilities, with everything that is needed to learn the practical, hands-on parts of every programme.
We are offering programmes of study in industries where there are employers ready to employ our graduates
We have highly experienced staff from Industry who recognise every individual’s potential and work with you to help you succeed
We will help you to get work experience during your course and then we support you when you graduate to find employment
Management have more than 30 years’ experience in the sector and we know how to build the highest performing colleges
We know that real success comes, when our students’ hearts and minds are engaged. We are creating a college with great heart and the talented staff required to turn people’s minds on to learning.
At Papakura Private Hospital we have been providing work place experience for CAGS students for many years. We know that the students who present for work experience are well prepared & committed to their studies. The daily visits by Tutors during the work experience period supports the students who in many cases are coming face to face with practical client handling for the first time.
It is really encouraging to see the students fresh from class with a lot of theoretical knowledge leave after work experience feeling confident that they can provide quality care to their clients.
It is a pleasure to have CAG Students in our facility with their enthusiasm and desire to learn, They always come well presented in their uniforms and are a credit to their Tutors, who in turn are very approachable and friendly.
