Got A Trade! Week 2018

GAT Event Placeholder

Got A Trade! Week is an opportunity to highlight and increase understanding of all the many career opportunities in the trades and services, along with celebrating the talents and achievements of young people making headway in their chosen vocation.

Industry training is a key contributor to a faster-growing, more competitive economy and there are a huge range of employment and career possibilities that offer young people the chance to 'earn and learn'.


  • To raise awareness of training and career opportunities in New Zealand’s trades and services.

  • To reposition trades and services as ‘Plan-A’ career paths in the minds of young people, aged 16-24 years, and key influencers, including parents, teachers and careers advisors. Also, Maori and Pasifika, and women in trades. 

  • To showcase the range of opportunities to learn on-the-job.

  • To encourage the conversations that celebrate trades and services. 

Look out for planned events, sign up for SpeedMeets or order resources to run your own event in your local area or school.
