As of 1 January 2014, all apprentice-type training was combined into New Zealand Apprenticeships. New Zealand Apprenticeships are designed to provide quality support for apprentices regardless of age. Skills Active is pleased to be able to offer the following New Zealand Apprenticeship Programmes:
Recreation and Sport (including Aquatics)
We are also working to put in place new Apprenticeship programmes for the Aquatics and Fitness sectors and hope to be able to offer these later.
NZ Apprenticeship subsidy available
Following the expiration of the government’s Apprenticeship Reboot Subsidy on 31 December 2014, and in an effort to further support our New Zealand Apprentices, Skills Active Aotearoa will provide a subsidy for eligible apprentices of up to a maximum of $1,000 per apprenticeship.
The subsidy can be used for covering up to 75% of professional development fees relevant to the New Zealand Apprenticeship programme being undertaken by the apprentice.
