A Future in the Trades
Apprenticeships are not just an alternative career choice they are critical for our economy and offer some of the highest paying earning potential.
As of July 1 2020, the Government is funding courses in construction, agriculture, manufacturing, community health, counselling as part of the country’s Covid-19 recovery plan.
Education Minister Chris Hipkins said the free vocational training will be available for people of all ages over the next two years. The cash includes:
– $334m for additional tertiary education enrolments.
– $412m for employers to retain and keep training their apprentices.
– $141m to support high quality tertiary and trades education.
– $50m for a Māori Apprenticeships Fund.
What a great opportunity to start a career in a Trade.
