Leadership – Employability – Action - Participation
LEAP is our student volunteer and leadership programme that has been developed to support students to become more community-minded and work-ready. This programme connects Whitireia & WelTec students with their local community and industry. It’s a great way to gain leadership experience, enhance your employment prospects, and form valuable connections within the community. LEAP is open to all Whitireia & WelTec students enrolled in a qualification of at least 34 weeks. Students enrolled in a17 week course will be assessed on a one to one basis.
How it works
Start by attending a welcome event where you’ll meet other LEAP students and staff. During your time with LEAP, you will be invited to complete team activities, and talk to inspiring community and industry leaders.
In order to successfully complete LEAP, students need to complete at least 20 hours of voluntary work experience both on and off-campus during their time with us. Following the completion of the programme, you will gain a certificate marking your achievement.
