There are various education facilities and opportunities in Northland providing creative courses and study options. You can opt for a Certificate, Diploma, Degree and even a Masters Degree in an education facility that’s close to home, where you can upskill, get started on a learning journey, or have a second chance at education.

See some of your options below:


North Tec offers a range of Creative Industries courses including Toi Te Wai-Nharahu (MĀORI ARTS) & Applied Writing

If you are interested in any of the courses please contact the team at North Tec or visit the NorthTec Arts Facebook Page to see their recent achievements. Creative Northland and North Tec have established a ‘Statement of Shared Objectives’ with a key aim of recruitment for their art courses. We would love to see more Northlanders study locally whilst also gaining a high standard of education.
