Why an apprenticeship?

New Zealand is in need of a skilled workforce. Get qualified while you learn and earn.

Training on-the-job

Become qualified as you train on-the-job with Competenz.


  • 1You’re earning while you learn

    No student loan! No long periods of time off work to train.

  • 2

    You finish your training with a job – not looking for one

     And that job’s one you’ve chosen.

  • 3You’re gaining practical skills

    You can use these skills from day one. And they’re nationally recognised: you can show employers across New Zealand you’ve got what it takes.

  • 4Those skills are in demand

    There’s work out there for people with trade skills.
