I came from Samoa in January 2011 and joined the Intensive Literacy and Numeracy programme. I was a shy boy who could not speak or read or write English. And not so good in Maths too.
My tutor helped me so much She would stay after school and teach me to read write and would always encourage me to speak. I came out of my shyness and stated enjoying the lesson. I had to walk from Takanini to Manukau up and down – but I was happy and always looking forward to the class as they were full of joy. My tutor was very patent and kind..First I got job at Ware house. Now I am working at Fisher and Paykel at the health Unit. I earn well and I even brought my mother and sister here.
I am very grateful to my tutor and Future skills for making my life successful. I WILL always remember what my tutor told me once – Education is power. Education liberates you from all burden Thank you Future skills.
Johnson Hiko finished school without credits because his family couldn’t spare the money for his NCEA exams. That was three years ago. Fast forward to Future Skills. Today, the 20-year old is volunteering as an assistant tutor at the Manukau-based training academy and finishing his Level 3 carpentry qualification at Manukau Institute of Technology. How did that come about?
