Skills Active Aotearoa trainees and apprentices graduate with flying colours

December 10, 2019

We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to all of our graduates from the past six months. Ka mau te wehi kia koutou! Awesome, everyone!

Click here for the full list of Skills Active graduates who have had their certificates awarded since June 2019.

Each year, thousands of Skills Active trainees and apprentices pursue qualifications in recreation, exercise, sport and performing arts. Getting qualified supports them in spreading the kaupapa of our industries – which is all about creating happy and healthy lives through physical and cultural activity.

Professional qualifications also help our graduates to increase their earning power and career progress, provide more value to their employers, and attain formal recognition of their skills and experience.

Industry training is a raranga tangata (team effort). Our trainees have reached the end of this chapter in their career education through their own hard work and talent, along with the support and encouragement of their whānau and friends. 

So here is our sincere message to all graduates:

Ngā mihi nui ki a rātou katoa, nā Skills Active.
“Congratulations and best wishes to them all, from Skills Active.”
