STUDENTS interested in care-giving will be able to pursue education in the field of health care in New Zealand.

Caregivers Services International (Fiji) Limited (CSI) achieved a milestone this week when it signed a deal with the Auckland Goldstar Institute.

Goldstar marketing manager Amrinder Singh Saini, who was in the country to talk with the management of Caregivers Services, said with the signing students of CSI would be able to study, work and settle in New Zealand.

"For the students who have CSI certificates, it's a good pathway for them to settle in New Zealand," he said.

"They can enhance their skills and education in New Zealand in the field of health care and other aspects of the industry.

"We already have students from CSI studying in our institute, those who are serving the health care sector over there.

"Today we had a very good presentation with the students and I can see the interest in them to continue their education at Goldstar. We will be helping Fijian students maintain quality."

CSI director general Elisapeci Koroi said it was a great day for the school and the students.

"The school has recognised our certificate and they are willing to take our students to diploma level. This is a great achievement and we'll encourage our students to take up the opportunity," she said.
