Blackwood Protector promotes trade careers in NZ

The ‘Tools 4 Work’ program is a partnership between the not for profit organisation Competenz and Blackwoods Protector. The program gives secondary school students the opportunity to prepare for engineering-related trades careers while at school and provides online resources and moderation of assessment for both trades and teachers.

Blackwoods Protector’s support, through the sale of our own JBS tools range, allows the program to visit more students, more schools and more career advisers.

That means more young people will see a clear pathway to a well-paying job and the opportunity to get qualified while getting paid.

Every year the ‘Tools 4 Work’ program provides:

  • Detailed project plans and designs for students;
  • Support materials and workshops for teachers; and
  • Moderation of work to ensure high quality standards are kept.

With assistance from Blackwoods Protector, Competenz has reached 230 secondary schools and 6,000 students nationwide.
