CPIT’s Trades Enrolments Climb 39 Per Cent

5 February 2013 - For immediate release

CPIT’s Trades Enrolments Climb 39 Per Cent

Enrolments for the first intake at CPIT’s Trades Innovation Institute (TII) are up 39% as the rebuild kicks into gear. This Thursday 680 students will commence their studies in a range of programmes, compared to 490 at the same time last year.

“We have planned for an increase in student numbers across all the trades and this year we have added extra occurrences in civil construction, carpentry and painting and decorating as a result of increased student numbers,” Karen Te Puke, Head of Department at TII says.

Interest in trades programmes at CPIT is at a high with a 48.4% increase in applications. CPIT are working in partnership with industry to make sure that students can transition quickly into employment as the demand for skilled workers increases.

“We work closely with industry to ensure our programmes are fit for purpose and allow seamless transition into the workplace. We are working in partnership with SCIRT in particular to meet the needs of the infrastructure industry,” Te Puke says.

Carpentry programmes are the most sought after, with 174 students beginning carpentry study this week, including students from the He Toki ki te Rika, Pasifika Trades Training and Canterbury Tertiary College initiatives.

The Painting and Decorating 14 week programme has high numbers enrolled for the first intake with interest already high for further intakes in May and September.

Additional programme occurrences across CPIT’s trades programmes commence in March, April and May. Applications will continue to be accepted up until the programme start dates. Visit www.cpit.ac.nz .

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
