Once again, we see ourselves heading into Alert Levels to combat the new cases of COVID-19 in our community.

We understand that you will have questions about your apprentices and their Provider block courses – and we are working quickly to establish how this will affect everyone, especially those trainees scheduled for off-job training.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • For now, as Auckland enters Alert Level 3, we can confirm that block courses scheduled in Auckland from 12-15 August are suspended with immediate effect. We will be in touch via email with all those affected.
  • Outside of Auckland, under Alert Level 2, those block courses will still go ahead. We ask that you please encourage your apprentices to maintain physical distancing and continue to be vigilant with their hand washing, contact tracing and remaining home if they or someone in their household is sick.

For updates on block courses, please see the Status of Block Courses page.

Please do keep checking our website regularly as it will be updated with the latest information.

Until then, please stay safe and contact your Skills account manager if you have any questions or need more information.
