MITO helps thousands of learners gain the knowledge and skills they need to accelerate their careers with on-the-job training and apprenticeships. This can start at school with our secondary school micro-credential programmes for students in Years 11, 12 and 13.

Smaller than a qualification, micro-credentials certify achievement of a specific set of skills and knowledge and are approved by NZQA. Supported by MITO, in partnership with secondary schools and local businesses, these micro-credentials include both eLearning and practical workplace learning, and can be used towards the next step in a MITO training programme.
