Are you working with 18-24 year olds who may be interested in construction training and employment opportunities? If so, Auckland Council would like to hear from your organisation.
As part of Te Auaunga Awa: Walmsley and Underwood Reserves Project, the council is working with Unitec and Project PETER to provide a fees free pre-apprenticeship youth training programme. The four-month programme will start July 2016 and includes training, site visits, a Level 2 construction qualification, restricted driver licence training and potential apprenticeship opportunities associated with the project.
To be eligible candidates must be aged between 18-24, hold a learner driver licence and a minimum of NCEA Level 2 for English and Maths (or equivalent). Preference will be given to local candidates.
In the coming months we will be developing an application pack and also offering information workshops to give more detail about the programme to those organisations working with young people, recognising that these organisations are best-positioned to identify young people in the area who might be suitable and interested in completing this training course.
If you are interested in attending these workshops and finding out more, please contact patrick.gifford@
aucklandcouncil.govt.nz (Specialist Broker Youth Connections).
Project PETER will also be delivering a Learner Driver License training programme in April-May, so that interested candidates can gain their learners licence before applying. Please contact email@example.com if you'd like to register for this opportunity.
