HITO Events

Got a Trade

Got a Trade? Got it Made is a national campaign to raise awareness of on-the-job training and careers in New Zealand’s trades and services.

It also celebrates the talents and achievements of young people making headway in their chosen vocation.

HITO is taking part in several exciting events throughout the week, including awards, employer-student networking, and more. It’s a fantastic chance to learn more about apprenticeships and trades training and get started in an awesome career.
