Skills is committed to supporting our Pasifika trainees. We recently hosted our first workshop for Pasifika electrical trainees at the Auckland Skills office. This was a huge success for those who attended, and they walked away feeling more confident, knowledgeable, and motivated.

Our Pasifika team (Issac Liava'a and Tony Laulu) is planning to hold these workshops every 6 weeks. The sessions will provide our Pasifika trainees with training support and mentoring to help with their electrical apprenticeships. The trainees who attended said they gained value from the event and have committed to attending the next one. 

A huge thank you to our tutors, Marius Schmidt and Mike Styles, for running our workshops on the day.

If you know of any Pasifika electrical trainees who you feel would benefit from these workshops, please feel free to contact either Issac or Tony. We’re already looking forward to the next session!
