TARGETED TRAINING AND APPRENTICESHIP FUND
Further to the Budget 2020 announcements on 14 May, the Minister of Education, Hon Chris Hipkins, has announced details of the Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund, which is designed to make it easier for people to train in industries where demand is expected to grow as New Zealand recovers from COVID-19. Further information about the Fund can be found in the Minister’s press release.
MITO APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMMES
The Fund will pay for the training fees for all learners that enrol or are already enrolled in a MITO apprenticeship programme, from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2022.

In some targeted industries the Fund will also provide free training to industry trainees. MITO is expecting confirmation of which MITO traineeship programmes will be free from the Tertiary Education Commission very soon. We will update this information as it comes to hand.
