The health and wellbeing sectors are growing and changing rapidly. And, the demand for skilled, competent workers is expected to rise significantly in the coming decades.

We work with people who want a rewarding career in one of the many sectors we support. The range and diversity of jobs is large. Maybe you want to work with youth, the disable or aged, be a social worker or a physiotherapist?

Whatever you choose, as long as you are working or volunteering in a health and wellbeing role, you can enter into workplace training or a New Zealand Apprenticeship with us.

Through relevant and practical on-the-job training, we will help you to achieve a recognised New Zealand qualification, all while you are establishing yourself in a rewarding career.

The development of a person-centred and skilled workforce will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of every New Zealander. Do you want to help?
