Short Diploma Course
A shortage of qualified web
developers is nothing new to New
Zealand, which lists web
development on its Long-Term
Skill Shortage list.
Worth Rhine, marketing and
enrolments co-ordinator at
Yoobee School of Design, says
web development requires highly
specialised technical expertise,
including high levels of coding
and analytical skills.
''There are more than 1000
positions demanding web
development skills listed on Seek
in New Zealand. In Canterbury
alone, there are 124 jobs
advertised for web development,
which is nearly double the number
of positions advertised for builders
in the region.''
Yoobee (previously Natcoll
Design Technology) is answering
the call in the Canterbury market
with a Diploma of Web
Development, in August.
The intensive 41-week, NZQA-
certified programme is a Level 6
qualification, offered full-time and
on-site. Students studying the
diploma learn both client-side and
PHP, MySQL, Ecommerce, and
content management systems,
along with many other skills.
Worth says: ''The Diploma of
Web Development is an excellent
pathway into this in-demand field.
Yoobee has 15 years' experience in
the digital technology industry.
Tutors and staff constantly liaise
with the industry to ensure
students receive the most
relevant education possible. With
small classes and a student-
centered culture, Yoobee offers
students ample tutor assistance
Applications are open for
August's Diploma of Web
Development at Yoobee. For

Extraordinary study pathways
Showtime: Students keen to specialise in music or
theatre can pursue their dreams at Aranui's Performing
Aranui Academies continues
to offer a wide selection of
part- and fulltime courses for
students wishing to pursue a
pathway that may be a little
out of the ordinary, says
principal John Roh.
''This year, we have been
fortunate in gaining the
Canterbury Tertiary College
Level 2 cookery programme,
which is open to all senior
students in Christchurch and
operates two days per week.''
Roh says ''immensely
popular sports programmes''
are still a drawcard to Aranui
High. These include the
12-hour per week Basketball
Academy run by high-profile
coach Bert Knops; and the
which is run by Te Iwi
Ngaro Wairau, who was
development officer for
Canterbury rugby league.
''In the performing arts,
theatre and music attract
many students keen on
specialising in this area,'' Roh
says. ''Music Academy
students are able to make
good use of our outstanding
recording studio facilities.''
A CISCO Academy is
available for students seeking
a career in IT, while trades
programmes in hard materials
provide students with on-the-
job training with skilled
''Full-time offerings include
the extremely successful
childcare programme, which
leads to National Certificate
level; and the Services
Academy, which caters for
students from year 11 for
whom a mainstream year 11
course may be a struggle or
for whom an active outdoor-
based programme with a
military ethos is more
suitable,'' says Roh.
''Aranui High is proud to be
able to continue to offer the
Academies programme as an
important part of its
operation, as it looks forward
to its future as part of the
Campus to be developed on
the school site over the next
