Māori and Pasifika Trades Training


Build a career, earn good money and train with us for free.

As a member of Māori and Pasifika Trades Training (MPTT), we help Māori and Pasifika students kickstart a trades career. So if you’re Māori or Pasifika, aged between 16-40, are a NZ Permanent Resident or NZ Citizen and keen to enrol in an approved course, you’re eligible for an MPTT Scholarship. 

School wasn’t for you? No stress… you won’t be stuck in a classroom with us. Choose from Construction, Electrical Engineering, Plumbing and Gasfitting or Paint & Plastering and work on real projects in our purpose-built trades campus. You’ll make friends, build your confidence, get mentor support and most importantly learn the hands-on skills that can lead to a job.
