Level 3 Trades Academy
Contact Person: T. Duncan
Trades Academy courses are hands on, with a focus on developing relevant practical and personal skills essential in the workplace. They are a good option for students who are seriously considering a trade when they finish school.
Training is based one day a week at NMIT or in residential blocks at Whenua iti Outdoors.
Places are available for students in Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Hairdressing, Beauty, Creative Design for Hair and Make Up, Art and Design (Digital Technology), Health and Support Services, Hospitality, Building and Construction, Sport and Exercise, Environmental Science, Emergency and Response, Tourism Operations, Service Industry Internships, Adventure Tourism Leadership, Environmental Science, Predator Control and Conservation, and Manaaki Tapoi courses.
Students need to have a positive attitude, be committed to attending and willing to learn new skills. The students will still be enrolled at NCG in 5 subjects, while working towards a National Certificate in a Trade and a minimum of NCEA Level 2. Different credits are available for each course and this can be discussed with the Trades Co-ordinator - Ms Duncan.
Open to Year 12 or 13 students who have gained NCEA Level 1. Students are required to go through an interview process in order to be accepted into this programme.
Courses are based on student choice, so some courses may not run.
