Building apprenticeships may start at school

New Zealand Herald : September 3, 2020

Students may be able to start building apprenticeships while still at school through a new collaborative training scheme that aims to get trainees into paid work faster.

The new Construction Centre of Vocational Excellence, based at the Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT), also aims to drive changes across the construction training sector such as new technologies, environmental sustainability and recruiting more women, Māori and Pasifika trainees.

It’s one of two new centres of vocational excellence launched by Ardern today as part of the Government’s broader vocational training reforms that are bringing all regional polytechnics and industry training under a national NZ Institute of Skills and Training.

The other new centre, the Food and Fibre Centre of Vocational Excellence, will be hosted by the Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawke’s Bay.
