New partnership to make a world of difference
With the current construction environment and the local industry spread so thinly and requiring significant increases of plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers, effectively maintaining a pool of talented and competent tradespeople can be challenging.
During these times of significant demand for our trades, as an industry, we need to be proactively seeking the solutions to alleviate the problem.
One circumstance that has become apparent to us recently, has been the fact that some people have actually completed their training - but have grappled with passing the Board’s exams to become registered.
This is a situation mostly due to literacy and numeracy issues - a struggle with words and numbers.
Some, after many attempts, have passed their registration exams, and others, unfortunately, have decided to adjust their career pathways as a consequence of this difficulty.
Over the past ten months, we have been working together with Literacy Aotearoa on an initiative that better tailors our registration exam options for people who may approach literacy and numeracy in a different way.
The Board and Literacy Aotearoa are happy to announce a programme particularly designed for people working in our industry is now a permanent fixture available in exam support options.
