Aspire2 Education, with the Trades and Training Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF), offers citizens and residents to undergo retraining and master a new speciality that is in demand in New Zealand.

The offer is part of the New Zealand government’s initiative to fund local students to retrain in highly understaffed industries. Before the pandemic, this shortage was filled by workers from abroad, but now the borders are closed to foreign specialists. Therefore, local students have an excellent opportunity to upgrade their qualifications or gain a new profession for free at the expense of state subsidies.

Aspire2 Education offers the following programs:
