Working up to 14 hours a day in the dairy sector, as well as having a young child, makes it hard to take on study to enhance career options. But Robert Pocock didn’t let that stand in his way. Robert has just graduated from eCampus NZ with a NZ Certificate in Business (First Line Management) following twelve months of study.
“Once I had made the decision to undertake management study, I did a lot of research to find out the option that would work best for me. I knew that I would need to study online but didn’t know where to go. I looked at all the options and the eCampus NZ course seemed the best one to meet my needs.
“I liked the flexibility to fit around my day and what was going on in my life at the time. I work up to 14 hours a day, so it was very important that whatever study option I chose would be able to slot in to my free time”.
Robert hopes that his newly completed qualification will enable him to take the next steps in his career and move into a future management role.
“The course gave me a better understanding of people and process – I’m not necessarily getting this in my day to day work so this has expanded my knowledge and been great for my personal growth.
“eCampus NZ is a great option for anyone wanting to study because you still have a life. It also suited me because I didn’t have to sit in a classroom”. Robert says that completing the course has had such a positive impact on him that he intends to study accounting through eCampus NZ and intends to go on to complete his diploma.
