Have you considered that the people your business needs might already be on the payroll? 50% of the employers we work with are actively upskilling their existing employees. Investing in training with Competenz helps retain your best people and ensures they are well-equipped to handle the future needs of your business and match your ambitions. We can spot existing talent or help you find new learners, and customise a training plan that suits your business and gets your team NZQA-recognised qualifications.
Our customised training programmes help your employees grow new strengths, gaining skills and knowledge that have been endorsed by industry.
Training programmes can be apprenticeships (3-4 years), or short programmes and traineeships (6-18 months) that may result in a New Zealand Certificate, a qualification recognised on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.*
Our account managers or training advisors will work with you to explain our training programmes and develop a training plan, to meet the specific skills your business needs to build its future success.
We build a training plan to support your business
Our account managers or training advisors work with you to understand your business and the skills you need for success. Then they agree to a tailored training plan with you to help your employees gain those skills. Most of this learning takes place on the job.
We support your employees as they learn
We provide training materials and online learning, visit your workplace to check on progress, and arrange for your employees to complete any off-job training they need.
We confirm your employees' new skills
We arrange assessments to confirm your employees have built their skills, and register their success with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
You, the apprentice, and us
There are three parties to a New Zealand Apprenticeship - the apprentice, the employer, and an industry training organisation like Competenz. Each party has unique responsibilities.
