We work with industry to develop New Zealand’s qualifications and apprenticeships for people working in the sport and community recreation, exercise, performing arts, snowsport, dive and outdoor recreation industries.
All of our qualifications are listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework. While some of our qualifications can be done in a classroom setting, most of our qualifications are hands-on, and are designed to be achieved by people actively working in their roles..
Structured on-the-job learning is one of the most effective ways to build staff capability and engagement, and can have a real impact on the quality of services provided by organisations.
We’re passionate about working face-to-face with you to empower you to deliver in-house training that aligns to the framework
The beauty of our industries is that sport, recreation and performing arts workplaces are all ideal places to complete on-job training and qualifications!
