Trades For Schools

What Is Trades for Schools?

Trades for Schools are courses specially designed by G&H Training for secondary school students wanting to try studying at a tertiary level and for a trade.

They are best suited for STAR and/or Gateway students planning a trades career.

Please note: G&H Training’s short courses (Trades for Schools) are not NZQA registered programmes. However, all units do directly credit into industry qualifications.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the start and and end times for practical courses?

Our 4 day practical courses start at 9am and end at 3.30pm each day. Alternative times can be arranged, but must be done so prior to the course.

How are the units for theory courses marked?

For our theory courses, the school sends the assessments to G&H Training, to be marked by our tutors. If re-sits are required, we send the assessments back to the school with instructions and so forth until the student has passed the unit.

Who reports the credits to NZQA?

The school is responsible for reporting all credits for all courses to NZQA using our provider code and is responsible for paying any costs involved with NZQA reporting and registering.
