U-Skills graduation ceremony at UCOL

U-Skills graduation ceremony at UCOL

UCOL will celebrate the graduation of 67 U-Skills students with a ceremony on Thursday 22 November.

The secondary school age students are the first graduates of one of the Government’s new trade’s academies, called U-Skills Central School Academy, led by UCOL this year.

Trades academies allow students to be enrolled at both their secondary school and a tertiary training provider.

U-Skills training is provided one day a week at UCOL in Palmerston North or in blocks during the week at locations in Whanganui, Horowhenua and Wairarapa. The other days are spent at school studying towards NCEA. The study is free and transport is funded.

UCOL has secured an additional 50 trades academy places for 2013 bringing the total to 150 across programmes in Retail, Hair and Beauty, Hospitality, Construction, Joinery, Automotive, Health, Farm Skills, Electronic technology, and Mechanical Engineering.

The ceremony will be held in the Atrium at the Palmerston North campus (Princess Street entrance) from 6.30pm.
