$3million in Reboot payments made by The Skills Organisation

$3million in Reboot payments made by The Skills Organisation

The Skills Organisation is pleased to announce it has passed $3million in apprenticeship Reboot payments.

Chief executive Garry Fissenden said more than 1000 employers and apprentices had received payments from the ITO under the government’s scheme, designed to stimulate the trades sector.

Plumbing and electrical apprentices made up the bulk of the payments.

Fissenden said the government’s recent extension of the Reboot subsidy was perfect timing for anyone considering an apprenticeship.

“On-the-job trades training is a smart choice, considering New Zealand has the Christchurch rebuild and the Auckland housing expansion on the horizon,“ he said.

“Earning while learning is an intelligent move, whether you’re starting out in the workforce or undergoing a career change.”

Fissenden said a number of The Skills Organisation’s eligible employers and apprentices had yet to apply for their subsidy.

”We’d encourage them to do so while the Reboot is still available,” he said.

“This is a great initiative from the government and a chance for apprentices and their employers to really kickstart their training.”

The Skills Organisation encourages anyone considering a trade to call 0508 SKILLS to discuss how they can take advantage of the Reboot subsidy and set themselves up in a great career.
