If you’re Pacific and aged between 16 and 40, Pacific Trades Training is an opportunity for you to gain valuable skills – for FREE – 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 Pacific trades leaders.
Once you complete your Pacific 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.
A Pacific support team from Ara will mentor and guide you throughout your training. For more details contact Maori.Pacific@ara.ac.nz
