Learn how to earn an income working at home. Anywhere.

heraldic_lion_rampantWe teach SKILLS which help you develop personal financial self-reliance. Think “second income”. Learn how to earn a worthwhile income working at home. You can live anywhere in the world: city or small town or completely rural. Any age over 18. Adults aged 40-79 usually have advantages over younger adults.

Ten different courses are available. To read about the course you’re interested in – look under COURSES (top of this page). Download the free information. Then call 0800-801994 to discuss your personal aspirations and options. We allow for everyone to be a bit different. International students call +64 9 536 6182.

We teach ten different, specialised training courses (three Journalism related and seven Fiction Writing), PLUS: Proofreading & Editing, Digital Photography and Life Coaching. Next training begins October 19.  

The Institute has been giving adults a SECOND OPPORTUNITY at a new career since 1991. That’s a quarter century. Over 15,000 people have said “Thank you, NZIBS, for my second chance at starting a worthwhile new career. I’m earning money. Life is exciting again!”

Every course is home study with no classes to attend and no travelling to class. Most training leads to you having your own small business  – working at home – doing as much or as little as you want to do. Choose your own work hours. 10am – 2pm is most popular. You set your own income level.

These days using the Internet and ‘selling something online’ is the quickest way to set up your own business. Your next customer or worldwide client is only an email away.

Our training courses are for adults looking to expand their range of work options. Proofreaders and writers and photographers can work for local or UK book publishers, newspapers, magazines, ezines, website builders, specialised businesses etc. It’s your choice.

Some people are starting exciting new careers. A fresh life completely! Blogs, websites, eCommerce, iPads, smartphones, social networking, (and various other mobile devices) means our courses now provide the training for paid work opportunities that didn’t exist a few years ago!

The Institute shows you where the real jobs are. Local and international. Lists of real jobs are posted and refreshed three times each week for our students and graduates! This is a unique service in tertiary education. Learn, graduate with credentials, then earn. (Look inside the NZIBS NEWSLETTER to see a few – about 5% – of the jobs we found this month which our graduates can apply for.)

Journalism graduates who were previously limited to working for the ‘local rag’ or a daily newspaper – limited by where they live – now have worldwide options. The Internet has brought us together as a ‘global village of world citizens’. It’s exciting. YOU can be part of it. You can live in Timaru and work for a client in Toronto – or anywhere! We show you how.


The digital age has produced a range of digital camera users, but very few users know how to turn their photos or videos into an income. We know how, and we can teach you the steps!

Proofreading & Editing has become a major required skill in this technological age. All sorts of documents (both online and printed on paper) are being created in their millions every year. They all need a skilled proofreader to ensure 100% accuracy.

Apart from conventional novels, magazines, manuals and newspaper articles that need to be checked, there are websites, blogs, online shopping pages, company reports, advertising material, webinar pages, PowerPoint pages, PDFs…  the list is practically endless. They all require the trained skill of a professional proofreader.

If you are the type of person who can spot a spelling ‘misteak’ at a thousand paces – and you think txt speak is NOT gr8, (and that it’s killing the English language) … then you should use your skill to fix the errors you see in all kinds of publications. This is well-paid work for proofreaders. There is almost no end to the amount of work available.

It’s fun and you’ll get paid to do it!

In the past, getting a book published was an expensive and complex process. Not now. Today, fiction writers have the opportunity to self-publish on Amazon. We show you how.

There is an old saying: “Everyone has a book in them.”  It’s true. But most people never get around to writing their book because they never take the first step and find out HOW. We show you how.

Most people can complete a SHORT BOOK in less than a month.

Could you produce a short ebook in your spare time? Thousands do. Amazon royalties will keep rolling in for 50 years. You could create a nice legacy for your grandchildren’s education fund.
