Vodafone Supports Young Kiwis with Technology Scholarships

Applications are open again for 2017 as NZSE & Vodafone partner together again to offer five Vodafone Technology Scholarships to find & develop their next apprentices.

Vodafone’s desire to “Help Kiwis do Their Thing Better” comes together seamlessly with NZSE’s vision of “Transforming Lives through the Power of Learning”. The Vodafone Technology Scholarship covers the full tuition fee of the two-year Diploma in Information Technology and the opportunity to work for New Zealand’s leading Telecommunications Company.

What’s in it for you?

  • An ability to get ahead with $20,000 worth of education
  • A two-year NZQA approved qualification in ICT
  • An opportunity to gain work experience at Vodafone to build your business skills and networks while studying
  • Possibility of full-time employment after successful completion of your studies

Vodafone is a technology company at heart, and like all good tech companies innovation is paramount. The way Vodafone see it is that innovation is not just about the big ideas, but the little actions every day that allow them to deliver network and IS solutions to their customers across New Zealand - from the family fertilizer businesses that needs tailor made technology solutions to enable their exports to simply export faster, to the New Zealand Police force who is using their technology to solve crime. It’s Vodafone's engineers, developers, BAS, Testers and Solution Architects that make this happen.
