PORTS AND STEVEDORING PROGRAMME FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
LoadUp® offers secondary school students the chance to earn a micro-credential in the Ports and Stevedoring industry approved by NZQA, credits towards NCEA and a great introduction to the workplace.

The fee for LoadUp™ is $200 + GST per student, per year. This covers the eLearning theory and practical assessment (managed by MITO) along with the support the school and students receive from sign-up to completion.
The student must have a unique email address and access to an internet-enabled computer, tablet or mobile phone. After enrolment, the student will receive an email with their log-in details to MITO’s learning management system.
Smaller than a qualification, micro-credentials certify achievement of a specific set of skills and knowledge and are approved by NZQA.
