New Zealand Apprenticeships

Qualified tradespeople are in demand in the Infrastructure industries. A New Zealand Apprenticeship is a great way to gain the skills, experience and qualifications you need to set you up for a career for life. New Zealand Apprenticeships are open to people of all ages who are in full time employment.  

How it works
New Zealand Apprenticeships combine theoretical knowledge with practical work experience. An Apprenticeship programme usually takes between 2 and 3 years, and leads to a Level 4 nationally-recognised qualification.
