    In order to gain real practical experience and prepare

    for work, you may be required to attend evening

    and weekend client sessions (see page 15). As a

    general guide this may include flexible attendance

    at the campus once a fortnight. We will endeavour

    to provide you with plenty of notice so that you can

    prepare for this, as you may need to consider support

    requirements to allow for these flexible hours e.g.

    childcare arrangements.

    Student induction

    During the first week of study, all new students will

    follow an induction programme. This will cover

    general items including health and safety, policies and

    procedures.

    You will meet the team of staff who will be in charge of

    your education while at Elite.

    National Student Number (NSN)

    Every tertiary student and NCEA candidate in New

    Zealand is given a unique number. This national

    student number (NSN) identifies students from each

    other and provides the Ministry of Education (MoE)

    with basic data needed to assess trends and develop

    initiatives. The numbers allow the MoE to work with

    the information in a way that protects student privacy.

    Students who do not already have an NSN prior to

    enrolment at Elite will be issued a number using a

    secure MoE site. Your NSN is also used for your NZQA

    Record of Learning on the NZQA website.

    International exam options > International exams are assessed by external

    examiners provided by the International

    Examinations Bodies. Policies and fees for

    International exams are governed by the

    individual International Examining Boards.

    > International exams normally take place twice

    a year in June/July and November/December.

    However examination arragements are subject

    to minimum numbers and on occasion can only

    be offered once a year. You must be registered

    12 weeks prior to exams.

    > Due to the stringent marking procedures of the

    examination boards, international exam results

    can take up to 3 months after the exams have

    been sat to be released to the School by the

    examining board. It is your responsibility to

    contact Elite to find out your results.

    > At Elite we have a choice of two international

    exams (not all are available at all campuses),

    all of which are highly recognised throughout

    the Industry. Your Tutors and Campus Manager

    are available to guide you as to the most

    appropriate personal choice for you.

    > All international exam fees must be paid in full

    on registration for each examination module

    and are not refundable once registration has

    taken plac
