Our history

Founded in 2003, New Zealand Skills and Education College (NZSE College) is a leading provider of tertiary qualifications in IT and Business Technologies, Early Childhood Education, Healthcare, Security and Military Preparation. Our campuses are located in Auckland, Waitakere and Hamilton.

In 2020, ATC (formerly Advance Training Centres) merged with NZSE College (New Zealand Skills and Education College) this transition has allowed NZSE College to bring systems and processes into sync, increase pathway opportunities for students, and give ATC students access to greater student services.

ATC was established in 1991 in Kaikohe, Northland to deliver free military-oriented programmes for youth between 16-19 years old. The programme was so successful and so widely regarded by the community that it expanded by opening campuses in Auckland and the Waikato. Find out more about ATC military and Vocational Prep HERE.

Founded in 1981 in Christchurch, Seafield School of English became part of NZSEG (the parent Group of NZSE College, Seafield and ATC Military Prep) in 2015. With readily available information on study resources as well as everything you need to know about living and studying English in Auckland – one of the most liveable cities in the world – Seafield ensures that your academic journey is a rewarding one.
