Modern Apprenticeships scheme continues to grow

Modern Apprenticeships scheme continues to grow

The Modern Apprenticeships scheme continues to expand, reaching 6,259 trainees across 30 industries in December 2003, Associate Education (Tertiary Education) Minister Steve Maharey said today.

The figures come at the same time as the first graduates from the scheme complete their training. A total of 213 young people have now completed their modern apprenticeship, gaining the industry and nationally recognised qualifications.

Steve Maharey congratulated the first graduates of the programme and encouraged other young people to think about the industry training option.

“Modern Apprenticeships is a scheme designed to match young people with the large number of skilled jobs in industry. Reports from employers about the difficulties they face to recruit skilled staff suggests that Modern Apprentice graduates will have long and lucrative careers ahead of them.

“The scheme is currently available in 30 industries ranging from electrotechnology and hospitality through to the seafood sector, dairying and agriculture.

“The government increased funding for Modern Apprenticeships this year to enable 6,500 young people to begin training by June 2004 – and then a further increase to 7,500 trainees during 2006.

“To find out more about Modern Apprenticeships call 0800 4 APPRENTICE (0800 427 773) or visit www.modern-apprenticeships.govt.nz,” Steve Maharey said.


Statistics on Modern Apprentices by territorial local authority and industry as at 31 December 2003 is available on-line at www.beehive.govt.nz/maharey

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Much of the sympathy the public still feels for the families of the Pike River miners has been sustained by the sense that the previous government – let alone the mining company and the processes of receivership and litigation – has never dealt honestly, or fairly, with them.

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
