We are about to embark on a series of information nights in the Christchurch region. These are a great opportunity for any of your students, in particular those in year 13, to come along and find out more information about the international travel/work experience opportunities available to them. They are more than welcome to bring their parents/guardians etc.

  It is important to note that our Priority Application closing date for 2020 gap year opportunities is:
Monday 29th April 2019
Applying before this date will give applicants priority selection in their country of choice. Many of our destination countries, in particular the UK/Ireland, Canada and Project Asia do reach capacity every year, and applying early will ensure they avoid disappointment. We DO accept late applications after this date, however, positions are subject to availability.

Gap Experiences and Global Competence

We’re passionate about gap experiences for young people, and believe the added value of our  Global Competence Certificate (GCC), means students looking to have a gap experience, either between leaving school and starting Uni, or who want a longer gap experience, can also gain a valuable qualification.

We pair the GCC with all of our 18+ programmes. It consists of a set of online modules and webinar/in-person sessions with a trained facilitator (Chloe Eberly at AFS NZL) alongside the gap experience itself. Designed to support learners participating in an intercultural experience, the GCC builds global competence.

What is Global Competence? Put simply, to be globally competent a person will have moved through the four stages of cultural competence, understand differences such as those between stereotypes and generalizations, and have reached an understanding of other cultures beyond their own experience and upbringing. A globally competent person understands the complexities of other peoples and ways of living and working, and the world at large.

This brief video explains what the GCC is:

Feel free to email me with any questions either about our gap experiences, or the GCC.


“Volunteering with Go Kiwi Go is the best decision I have ever made. The experiences I received while volunteering have shaped me into a globally aware citizen and have ignited a passion for volunteer work, and cross cultural studies.”
