JETmag gives practical job-hunting advice, profiles inspiring young people in all types of jobs, and details career progression for various sectors, from NCEA to CEO.

Education: What does NCEA mean in the real world? Universities, ITPs/polytechnics, wānanga, private training establishments – JETmag explains the major tertiary players and what types of courses they provide.

Training: We cover in depth the Government’s Vocational Pathways (including the Creative pathway), providing clear information on training options within each pathway and the careers onto which they will lead.

Life: Options after secondary school aren’t always as cut and dried as choosing a course or job. Adjusting to adult life can be tricky for both students and their parents.
