Wellington Trades Academy

Wellington Trades Academy

Enjoy the benefits of staying at school while you learn new skills, and achieving school qualification.

Your weekly timetable will look like:

3 or 4 – days at school

2 or 1 – days of practical learning

We partner with local secondary schools to provide year-long training programmes that allow you to achieve NCEA Level 2 or in some cases Level 3 units and get ready for employment or higher-level qualifications.

The programme is Fees Free, there are no course costs and all equipment, class materials, and safety gear is provided free of charge. Travel is provided free, subject to you meeting the Ministry of Education requirements.

If you’re accepted into the Trades Academy, you’ll be able to stay at school and complete NCEA, while at the same time working towards a qualification in a trade of your choice.
