Modern Apprenticeships

The Modern Apprenticeship programme, delivered in Taranaki by Engineering Taranaki Consortium (ETC), aimed to get more people skilled and into jobs in the engineering industry.

Changes to Government policies during 2013 resulted in the the announcment of New Zealand Apprenticeships (NZA). As of 1 January 2014, any new enrolments or sign-ons as apprentices are open age entry given that the Modern Apprenticeships programme primarily had an age criteria i.e. 16 - 21 years olds.

NOTE: all Modern Apprentices signed before 31 December 2013 continue to be managed under the MA programme. All apprentices will continue to be mentored and coached to ensure they achieve their full potential and complete their national qualfications.
