2 32 [Edition datE] Tuesday June 28 2016 CONTINUING EDUCATION SELWYN TIMES Scheme Helps Pasifika Tradespeople Succeed every year ara institute of Canterbury offers Pasifika Trades Training scholarships for anyone of Pasifika descent to train in trades fees-free. The iniTiaTive was created to help Pasifika people contribute to the rebuild of Christchurch and is run in collaboration with leaders from the Pasifika community and government agencies with Pasifika church ministers playing a key role in nominating people and offering pastoral support. Because everyone is different, there are a number of options and pathways available to help Pasifika men and women start a career in the trades. To make sure every student succeeds, support is available from the Centre of Māori and Pasifika achievement, with pastoral care advisors helping not only with study matters but with anything that impacts on students completing their studies. Trades training has evolved and that’s good news for learners. Classroombased theory sessions are being phased out in favour of shorter, more frequent theory sessions in new workshops so that students can practice what they have learned straight away. The new style will suit many Pasifika learners, especially those who would rather be using their hands than sitting for long periods of time. ara recently upgraded the trades training facilities with $18.9 million of government investment so that workshops are even more like what students will find out in their industry. ara has close connections with employers and the programme is designed to get graduates out working in industry after they graduate. Mid-year intake is now open with July starting dates for electrical engineering, Fabrication, Furniture and Joinery, General engineering, and Plumbing. Carpentry, Painting & Decorating and Plasterboarding start again in august. if you know someone who would benefit from getting a head start on a career in trades and they are Pasifika, tell them about the opportunities at ara institute of Canterbury.
