The GET Group Story

The GET Group is a bold and courageous business. We are always looking for new ways to do things and work hard to influence the educational landscape in New Zealand. We are very strong minded and fiercely believe in people. Our most endearing quality is our kind hearted and hardworking TEAM. The GET Group is the kind of business you want to hang out with – we inspire, support, care and above all… we always, always have fun!

We are a team of qualified misfits creating innovate training solutions for young people and adults in New Zealand.  Our superpower is ‘flexibility’ because we believe that every person has their own unique path to success and no ‘one size’ fits all. 

Founded in 2015, The GET Group has worked hard to become a Category 1 approved provider with NZQA, which is awesome for our little company 😊

We specialise in ‘Transition to Work’ programmes for young people, with the aim of building confident work ready people. We engage with around 300 Secondary Schools, a bunch of cool individuals and many forward thinking businesses across New Zealand.

Managing Directors

Noeline COOK & Angela Spice-Ridley


Founders, Noels and Ange GET what it is like to seek a fulfilling career but not know where to start. Once they discovered their passion they decided to create an innovative training group dedicated to building confident work ready young people – and The GET Group was born.

A word from Noels;


“I am a free thinking entrepreneur with a ton of failed ventures and a few successes that I am incredibly proud of.  Despite dropping out of Teachers College in my second year, I spent the next 20 years of my working life developing and implementing transition to work programmes for young adults in a number of different formats.  

In 2015 Ange and I put a team of qualified misfits together to create our innovate training company where our super power is 'flexibility'.  We believe every person has their own unique path to success and we continue to work hard to create a space for every learner we engage with to be GREAT!  

We have a desire to influence the educational landscape of New Zealand and we are super excited to help encourage young minds as they embark on their education journey.

Our motto; Whatever you are thinking… think BIGGER! Everything is possible!”
