We are a specialist, non-profit industry training organisation for sport, exercise, recreation and performing arts. We partner with industry to develop New Zealand qualifications and work with employers to align workplace-based training to national standards. Through this work, we help organisations step up, strengthen their people and flourish as individuals, businesses and industry.
When Mark Hurdle embarked on his Gym Manager apprenticeship with Skills Active Aotearoa, he and his wife didn’t have children, and by the time he finished they were parents of two girls under two. He also went from managing one club, to overseeing 16 clubs and 160 people.
Skills Active is gathering feedback from its industry partners in sport, recreation, aquatics, exercise, performing arts and snowsport, in order to contribute to the national conversation on NCEA.
Skills Active Aotearoa, the industry training organisation for sport and recreation, has launched a new pathway for leaders on the front lines in sport, exercise, community recreation, snowsport, outdoor recreation and performing arts.
New Zealand needs well-trained, qualified staff.
Our qualifications are a stepping stone to your future.
