Future Skills Academy

In line with our core values, Future Skills is dedicated to improving the lives of those who attend our programmes and prides itself on offering our students a safe, caring, supportive environment in which they can study and work towards the betterment of their lives and that of our communities.

Operating since 2001, we are a highly regarded and successful Category 1 training provider with campuses in Manukau and Royal Oak. In collaboration with Otago Polytechnic, we also have an international campus in Auckland CBD offering a range of programmes from Level 6 through to Masters, in a learning environment that utilises the most up-to-date experiential and project-based learning methodologies.

Future Skills’ offers a range of certificate and diploma level programmes and has been particularly successful in the health and wellbeing, and construction industries. We are the only institution offering an in-employment Diploma in Building Surveying L6 and working with Councils to deliver this throughout the country. Our work placements offer students the opportunity to experience ‘real-life’ learning and our small classes, modern facilities, and dedicated, experienced tutors, enables one-to-one care and attention. We have different pathways of study and all our programmes not only lead to a qualification but equip students with the capability, skills and knowledge to successfully enter the workforce or move onto further study.

Future Skills was established by Managing Director Sam Alavi in 2000, originally to deliver IT training, but has since evolved into an organisation that moves with the times and continues to realign itself to meet the needs of the communities it serves.
