Trades For Schools
What Is Trades for Schools?
Trades for Schools are courses specially designed by G&H Training for secondary school students wanting to try studying at a tertiary level and for a trade.
They are best suited for STAR and/or Gateway students from Year 11, 12 and 13.
Our courses focus on unit standards from level 1 to level 3, all of which directly credit into our full-time study courses.
Please note: G&H Training’s short courses (Trades for Schools) are not NZQA registered programmes. However, all units do directly credit into industry qualifications.
How To Book:
- Schools make an enquiry on the courses we offer and information is supplied to the school by G&H Training
- G&H Training sends a MoU to the school to be signed. This clearly states what we are offering and what the school can expect from us (and vice versa)
- The school signs and returns the G&H Training MoU, confirming and booking arrangements
- G&H Training issues any resources to the school (if required) OR dates and course information is finalised
