UCOL is heading one of the Government's new trade's academies -- called U-Skills Central School Academy. In partnerships with local schools, places are available to Wairarapa students in years 12-13 who are studying for NCEA level 2 and also want to gain a tertiary pre trade qualifi- cation. Applications for study in 2012 are open now. Trades academies allow students to be enrolled at both their secondary school and a tertiary train- ing provider. As an academy Hub school, Makoura College in Masterton is hosting the U-Skills Small Motors programme which is open to students from across the region. U-Skills is also offering a Fashion and Beauty programme at the Wairarapa UCOL campus. The programmes are open to all students at any school in the region. U-Skills training will be provided one day a week at the Hub school or the UCOL campus with the other days spent at the students' usual school studying towards NCEA. The study is free and transport to and from Makoura College or UCOL is also funded. The manager of U-Skills Jacqui Phillips says it's a brilliant new initiative that brings gains for the Wairarapa region. It's an opportunity for young people to get tertiary level training that will start them on their chosen career path. U-Skills students will also have contact with local employers, alongside careers and personal devel- opment support. It's a great way to encourage young people into trades where there are skill shortages in many areas -- with more shortages predicted in the future. Jacqui says studying under U-Skills offers the best of both worlds to students taking part. They can continue to enjoy the support of their school environment and keep their friends, cul- tural and sporting activities, while experiencing study at a tertiary level and starting to build a career. They can look forward to excellent, sustainable pay rates in trades areas.'' Jacqui says students have great options at the end of their U-Skills study year. We will assist students to plan their future pathways. This may be staying at school, going onto further tertiary study, moving into employment or an apprentice- ship. These are excellent ways forward.''
