Bay of Plenty gets trade training boost
Three new groups have signed on to the Maori & Pasifika Trades Training initiative.
That makes 15 providers who are helping rangatahi gain qualifications, apprenticeships and employment in trades.
Bay of Plenty Polytechnic is working with Nga Potiki a Tamapahore Trust to provide training in the Western Bay of Plenty, Te Pu Wananga o Anamata will service the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and Taranaki Futures Trust takes on the task in Taranaki.
Maori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell says the scheme has been developed to ensure training is aligned to the needs of both employers and learners.
The programme brings together employers, trainers, students and their families to provide what is being called a seamless path to fulltime employment.
