It’s great to see parts of the industry rebounding from the past economic downturn with increased sales (and long may it continue). The trading improvements highlight the importance of companies maintaining a flowing pipeline of suitably-skilled and trained personnel to meet future demand. The world-class industry training programmes available for apprentices through NZ Marine ITO, are a cost- effective way to ensure your business attracts the people to train, and has the personnel it needs to grow.
The government’s Apprenticeship Re-Boot incentive subsidy has been extended until the end of 2014. The subsidy has been designed to provide support to employers and apprentices, and help attract more people into apprenticeships. Each eligible apprentice and their employer receives $1,000 toward the costs of training and tools.
To date, employers have signed on 97 new apprentices in 2014 with NZ Marine ITO, 68 of who are eligible for the re-boot $1,000 subsidy for both the apprentice and employer.
