PORTS AND STEVEDORING PROGRAMME FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
We're delighted to announce that LoadUp™ - MITO newest secondary school programme - is coming soon!
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 industry offers a number of career opportunities – including port administration, cargo handling, and heavy machine operation.
Supported by MITO, in partnership with secondary schools and port operators, LoadUp™ has both eLearning and practical workplace learning. Unit standards completed for LoadUp™ can be used towards the next step in a MITO ports and stevedoring traineeship.
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.

Enrolments for this micro-credential open January 2021.
