What is Got a Trade? Got it Made!

GOT A TRADE? GOT IT MADE! IS A NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO RAISE AWARENESS OF ON-THE-JOB TRAINING AND CAREERS IN NEW ZEALAND’S TRADES AND SERVICES.

The campaign speaks to young people, aged 16-24 years, and key influencers, including parents, teachers and careers advisors.

The campaign aims:

  • To raise awareness of training and career opportunities in New Zealand’s trades and services.
  • To reposition trades and services as ‘Plan-A’ career paths in the minds of young people, aged 16-24 years, and key influencers, including parents, teachers and careers advisors. Also, Maori and Pasifika, and women in trades.
  • To showcase the range of opportunities to learn on-the-job.
  • To seed conversations celebrating trades and services.

The campaign is jointly owned and managed by a consortium of forward-thinking industry training organisations – BCITO, Careerforce, Competenz, Connexis, HITO, MITO, ServiceIQ, Primary ITO and The Skills Organisation.
