Matariki is a time for celebration, for bringing in the harvest and for taking stock of the previous year’s hard work. For the BCITO, celebrating this year’s harvest of standout specialist trades apprentices is a great way to ring in the Maori New Year. For all those who took part in these awards, congratulations from the BCITO.
Chris Jack, former All Black and BCITO-qualified carpenter is joining us this year as an ambassador to help promote construction trades within schools.
During the last week of May more than 500 hand-picked students accompanied by careers advisors and teachers from schools throughout the country attended BCITO’s Big Construction Tour, which returned for its fourth year.
