Trades - Construction

If you’re good with your hands, you like using tools and you enjoy making or fixing things, trades is a good area to get into and it offers great career opportunities. Demand for skilled tradespeople is high with the Christchurch rebuild in full swing and a significant nationwide housing shortage to address. One of the great things about becoming skilled in a trade is that you can, with experience, become your own boss. By equipping yourself with some business skills you can be self-employed or create a business that employs other tradespeople.

Study Pathways

Our trades programmes are designed to give you the option of starting a job or apprenticeship with good basic skills, or to enter a trade with advanced skills that make you a valuable asset from day one on the job.
