#tradesforme was a two-day event hosted by BCITO that brought together 430 students from 34 different schools all over Auckland to give them a hands-on experience of what it’s like to work within the construction industry.
Amelia Watts had never imagined entering the painting and decorating trade until she had the opportunity to get some hands-on experience with the help of BCITO and local Waikato firm Wilton Contracting.
