BCITO and Education Providers

We work in partnership with schools, employers and industry to help build a skilled construction workforce for New Zealand. We manage apprenticeships for more than 15 trades.


Built for students, teachers, and job seekers, myBCITO is a digital toolkit that will help tāngata start an apprenticeship, access online tools to get work-ready, build their portfolio and track achievements all in one place.

Teachers who have previously registered can access myBCITO here.
