The UP 100: Our students defining success

29 Nov 2022

UP Education launches The UP 100 – a compelling showcase of the transformative role of education in shaping the lives, passions and pursuits of learners.

In a newly released publication, the diversity, strengths and achievements of the 26,000 strong learning community of UP Education has been revealed in The UP 100.

The UP 100 shines a light on the inspiring stories of 100 UP Education students who are defining success in education, employment and leadership roles across the globe.

What sets them apart? The UP 100 are not only academically confident but also culturally confident – with a world-leading attitude that is taking them places.

Mark Rushworth, UP Education Group Chief Executive says: “From grassroots to global, our learners are making an impact.”

“We continue to be inspired by our students – understanding the challenges they overcome, the goals they smash, the successes they realise, and the change they effect in their communities, country – and for themselves.”

“If we are to meet the skill needs of the modern global economy, education must be fit for purpose and accessible to the lives of the modern learner, wherever they are and whatever life stage they are at.”

With an unwavering focus on high-quality educational outcomes and tailored learning environments, UP Education equips its learners with the skills to thrive in a wide range of industries: Building and Construction, Healthcare, Early Childhood Education, Tourism, Hotel Management, Sports, Hair, Beauty, and International Education.

While 100 stories have been shared, each story is unique:

  • Elenoa Tabudravu, NZMA Trades graduate, soared through the ocean on a fifty-ton ship. Now, she’s a trailblazer in the trades industry – one of a growing number of tradeswomen going against the status quo in Auckland, New Zealand.
  • Ryan Prance, Acknowledge Education student, recognised the critical role of healthcare professionals in society after being admitted to hospital for mental health. Now he is working towards his registration to become an enrolled nurse in Melbourne, Australia.
  • Oscar Featherstone, Yoobee College of Creative Innovation graduate, is the editor producer for CNN in London, UK. Ten years into his career, Oscar credits much of his success to the solid foundation he was provided during his tertiary studies.
