With the Generation Programme you can earn while you learn

For those looking to enter the forestry industry the Generation Programme offers a head start, with a “real-world” learning experience that combines entry level training and paid employment.

The programme is offered by Tūranga Ararau in Gisborne, with support from the Eastland Wood Council, and also by Toi Ohomai in Tokoroa and Waipa with support from the Central North Island Wood Council.

With an introductory ‘base-camp’ training in basic forestry skills, trainees are introduced to a range of forestry sectors, then mentored through their first year of employment while they complete their qualifications.
