Ag Challenge Announces Strategic Partnership with Tararua Training Taskforce

Ag Challenge is excited about an opportunity to deliver training in partnership with the Tararua Training Taskforce, based in Pahiatua. Ag Challenge will be delivering the Level 4 Ag Challenge Certificate in Carpentry to twenty students, starting in early 2014.

Details are still being finalised, however Daniel Moore, Project Manager for the Tararua Training Taskforce says, “The Taskforce, supported by Mayor Roly Ellis, Councillor Shirley Hull and the Pahiatua Chamber of Commerce, and in conjunction with Ag Challenge Limited, have secured a major opportunity for our youth in 2014. We have an ageing population and our businesses need programs like this to ensure a reliable work force for the future, and by investing in our young people now, will ensure this.”

Peter Macdonald, Manager, Ag Challenge says “Our Carpentry course is popular and successful because it is structured to provide teaching and learning in a real-life environment with the students building re-locatable buildings, which are transported around the North Island. We anticipate we will use this same model for this strategic partnership and will have further details early in 2014”
