Later this year, Careerforce will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Careerforce was first established as Community Support Services ITO (CSSITO) in 1994, with the trading name changing to Careerforce in 2006. It took its current shape as a result of ITO consolidation between 2011 and 2016, including mergers with Social Services ITO (SSITO), Building Service Contractors ITO (BSCITO) and Health Ed Trust (HET).

From humble beginnings as an organisation with just 9 staff in 1994, we have grown to an organisation with over 170 staff who support over 2000 employers nationally and over 15,000 learners annually.

While we have had various trading names and structures across the 30 years, the one constant has been our absolute focus on work-place based learning, and our focus on our health and wellbeing sectors. Across our 30 years, we have supported tens of thousands of learners into life changing careers, and this is something that we are immensely proud of.

These learners support many of New Zealand’s most vulnerable people, and we feel that we have helped to improve the quality of care and support of these people, through qualifications that our sectors and employers have helped shape across the 30 years.
