Kiwi Can Do sources job seekers from Northland, Auckland, Waikato and BOP, training them in West Auckland, with out-of-town job seekers accommodated at Otimai Lodge in Oratia. They currently train approximately 40 job seekers per month (starting around 10 each week). Participants are predominantly youth (65%) and Maori (80%).
The programme provides 3 weeks training on-the-tools under the supervision of retired tradies (known as Dad’s Army). The objective of the training is to build work confidence by mentoring and role modelling good work practices. Trainees also complete compliance-based training – Site Safe, First Aid etc.
Once they have completed their training they go out on work experience placement prior to starting employment. Kiwi Can Do may help the out-of-towners find accommodation and get settled and they provide in-work support for 3 months post-employment. Kiwi Can Do are currently building small houses as part of their programme and they are planning to construct an EasyBuild house at their training premises.
