Education and Sustainability

Our love of healthy people, healthy communities and healthy environments means Aotearoa New Zealand offers some great opportunities for work and study in outdoor and environmental education, adventure and eco-tourism and sports.

With continued growth in tourism driven by the wild and natural beauty of our country, and an international reputation for adventure and sport, you can expect to be in demand if you have the right skills and expertise.

Study Pathways

Depending on your area of interest, you can follow up your Youth Pathways programme with an Ara certificate, diploma or degree programme in sports or outdoor education. If you want to pursue a career in outdoor education and you have an interest in sustainability, our Bachelor of Sustainability and Outdoor Education is a great option. Unique in Australasia, it moves beyond traditional models of learning to give you the knowledge and confidence to influence and inspire others to live life to the full while caring for the planet.
