Career Guidance Workshop
Our Career Guidance Workshop can help you plan your current or future career journey. At this whānau-friendly event, our team will guide you to discover potential career options for your future.
Are you working in the building industry and want your carpentry trade qualification? This flexible course will allow you to become a qualified carpenter while working in the construction industry under the supervision of your employer, who is willing to support you as an apprentice.
Learning takes place on-site at your workplace through practical work and tasks. Our licensed, qualified carpentry tutors do site visits to check your work and assessments, then sign off your modules.
You will need to attend three week-long block courses each year. The block courses can vary in length and may involve day classes and night school. As a student, you will also have access to Moodle, our student learning platform, to upload your work evidence and access resources.
Note: no value in the pre/co-requisite columns means there are no pre/co-requisites for that module.
