If you’re Pasifika and aged between 16 and 40, Pasifika Trades Training is an opportunity for you to gain valuable skills that will help you earn good money and create a great life for you and your family. You’ll also explore your cultural identity and be supported to join the next generation of Pasifika trades leaders.

Once you complete your Pasifika Trades Training course, the next step is a three or four year apprenticeship where you’ll earn while you learn from your employer. Then, you can continue to work or do further training to develop the advanced skills required to become a future workplace leader.

Support

A Pasifika support team from Ara will mentor and guide you throughout your training. For more details contact Fitifiti Luatua:
