Message from our Principal

Firstly, thank you for visiting our website. You will find here a comprehensive introduction to CNSSTEI, a Private Training Establishment (PTE) fully accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and one of the social enterprise projects at CNSST. In accordance with that accreditation our school is able to offer its students a range of nationally recognised educational qualifications and pathways to New Zealand universities.

CNSSTEI warmly welcome both local and international students and will empower you to face the challenges in your future. In addition to a quality educational experience, our school offers a safe, comfortable and friendly environment in which to study. As a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students CNSSTEI understands the particular needs of those of you who come from abroad. We have all the necessary services to fully support you during your time with us within and outside the classroom to ensure your stay remains happy and academically productive. For our international students the ability to settle in well on arrival is the key to a quick and successful start in their study life.  Our strong and experienced team of staff are also ready to provide you post-study support and assist you when you need to seek employment.

The Chinese New Settlers Services Trust (CNSST), one of the most highly reputable non-governmental organizations (NGO) in New Zealand, is the parent organisation of CNSSTEI. The Trust provides social work and counselling, employment and enterprise, settlement and education services to the community, and has served an average of 10,000 clients per year for the past 20 years. A range of accreditations and awards from government agencies give full testament to the service quality and reputation of CNSST.

A brighter future for you” is our slogan. I wish you every success with your studies and your career pathway. That our paths have crossed in this moment is both our good fortune and yours, and offers you the chance to begin your educational journey with us in the last paradise on earth --- New Zealand and its biggest city, Auckland.
