Fund to support learners to train in high demand areas

Education Minister Chris Hipkins has announced a $320 million fund to encourage and support New Zealanders to undertake and continue in vocational education and training in high-demand industries, at no cost to learners.

The Government has made it easier for New Zealanders who want to train in industries where demand is expected to grow as the country recovers from COVID-19 and have removed costs for learners, apprentices or employers – for the next two and a half years.
