Vocational Pathway - Manufacturing and Technology Sector (Longveld) (Level 2)

About the programme

Wintec has teamed up with Hamilton-based manufacturer Longveld a leading Engineering and Stainless Steel Manufacturing business in Hamilton, to offer a unique training course for young women interested in a career in fabrication and engineering.

It will see young women at Year 11 and 12 levels from Waikato Trades Academy Partnership schools attend one day a week at our Wintec trades and engineering workshops, where they will build a project gaining knowledge in a variety of skills relating to automotive, electrical, and mechanical engineering. This hands-on practical course provides fundamental skills that can take students to the next level of study or work in manufacturing and technology.

You will gain entry-level skills by completing electrical and automotive modules where you dismantle large and small engines. In the mechanical engineering section, you will build a project which you will be able to take home.

Vocational pathway: Manufacturing and technology

Programme code: WTA013

Duration of programme: 31 weeks

Entry criteria: Year 11 or 12 female students studying at a Waikato Trades Academy Partnership school.

Personal protective gear will be provided. More detailed information on what you would learn, as well as timetables, can be seen here.

About Longveld

Operating internationally from Hamilton for 22 years, Longveld places a strong importance on forming partnerships in the community and providing equal employment opportunities, says Managing Director Pam Roa.

"We are committed to providing work experience for young people in the engineering trades. We want to help them make choices that suit their skills and aptitude. However, women are under-represented in our sector and we are working hard to address this. Gender diversity benefits workplace culture and therefore long term sustainability. We have had up to five female trade staff in our workshop at any one time and currently, 40% of our managers are women, and we want to build on this."
