Professional Speaking for Migrants
Applying for a job is always a challenge, and if English is not your first language and you are without New Zealand work experience, it is more challenging still. Here is where the Professional Speaking for Migrants course developed by Speech New Zealand can help.
As part of the Professional Speaking for Migrants course, students role-play job interviews, deliver seven-minute presentations about their work skills and experience, and introduce a guest speaker. The course teaches them how to talk with confidence and clarity about their careers, work experience, skills and community involvement. First run in Rotorua in 2011, the 10-week course has been run every year since.
