ABOUT US

Everyone knows of a student at school who “was really good with their hands but not great with the school work”. At Kiwi Trade Apprentices we believe that for that student to be “Good with their hands” they must have a good brain, as we all know that your brain makes your hands work.

Kiwi Trade Apprentices believe that the challenge is in unlocking this potential.Our company directors, based in Wainuiomata, Wellington, have experienced first-hand both the mentored and non-mentored apprenticeship styles on offer in New Zealand and believe there is a place for both.
