We know it's not easy being an employer in the Water Industry today. The industry has a shortage of skilled staff and the average age of skilled staff increases each year. We understand that the challenges involved in attracting new recruits in a very competitive labour market can limit the growth of your business – that’s where modern apprenticeships can help.
Keen young people in your workplace can become modern apprentices.
Modern apprenticeships are a Government sponsored scheme for 16-21 year olds, and in some cases over 21s, in industry employment. Modern apprentices receive personalised support, training plans and goal setting sessions with a modern apprenticeship co-ordinator.
Modern apprenticeships are well recognised by young people as worth having.
Water Industry Training offers modern apprenticeship programmes in the water treatment, wastewater treatment and reticulation sectors. It's all part of ensuring we attract, train and retain the high calibre people our industry needs – for today and the future.
For more information about employing a modern apprentice in your workplace, please contact your local training adviser on 0800 WATER IT (0800 928 374) today. Further information can be found at www.modernapprenticeships.co.nz.
