Modern apprenticeships

Tectra is proud to be part of the Modern Apprenticeship programme run by the Tertiary Education Commission.

As a Modern Apprenticeship Coordinator, Tectra works with apprentices and employers to ensure that all involved are in a win win situation.

Under the programme the Modern Apprentice gets a nationally recognised qualification and the employer gets the right support to make managing the Modern Apprenticeship easy.

We work hard to develop a personalised training programme for the Modern Apprentice that sets out what needs to be covered under the apprenticeship and when. We then regularly contact our apprentices to provide them with any support they require.

We work with employers so that they are aware of what the programme entails and any responsibilities that they may have. We also handle all the administration so employers don't need to worry about that part.

Like most apprenticeships, a wool harvesting apprenticeship takes three years. It's not long when you consider the variety of skills you will learn along the way and just as importantly that you have the security of ongoing employment while you are in the programme.

Interested or want to know more then contact one of our regional training coordinators or call free phone 0800 496 657.
