Professional Skills and Trades

When a job is what you want, our Umanga programmes can help you gain the experience and qualifications you need for your chosen career.  With a trade under your belt you’ll be set up for a better future for yourself and your whānau.

Learn from experienced people in your choice of forestry, carpentry, or the infrastructure trades, and become qualified for work in that industry. You’ll get hands-on training in the bush, or on a building, roading, or construction site.

If a career in corrections or the Police force appeals to you, train to be a corrections officer or prepare for entry into Police training college.

With our professional skills and trade qualifications, you’ll be on a clear path to the career you want.
