About Training For Work

Regent Training Centre’s Training for Work scheme is intended to deliver short, effective, employment focused training courses for working age Work and Income (WINZ) beneficiaries. The various programmes at Regent Training Centre have been designed in partnership with local employers and communities to give clients the skills they need to be able to take advantage of local employment opportunities.


To provide this service, Regent Training Centre is fully government funded, which means that there are no fees or charges to eligible participants. Subsidies towards travel to and from training are also available. All clients wishing to join the Training for Work programme must be referred by, or approved by WINZ.


Your programme will begin with a full assessment by a Regent Training Centre Training for Work Co-ordinator. Should there be a need for language, or literacy and numeracy skills then we can refer you to our specialized Intensive Literacy and Numeracy Programme, or if your capabilities allow, you may be able to combine some literacy and numeracy classes with your Training for Work timetable.


We will also be assessing your suitability for industry with regards to relevant legislative or regulatory requirements. Should your circumstances prevent you from working in your first choice of industry, we will work with you to find another, good, alternative career option.


Regent Training Centre will work with you individually to design your 13 week programme tailored to your needs and the requirements of specific job opportunities. We will work with your personal skills, qualities, abilities and natural potential to ensure that as much learning and development takes place as possible during your time with us. Part of your individual course plan could be gaining certificates, licenses and/or NZQA unit standards as well increasing your CV writing and interview skills. Some learning will be classroom based, other learning will be via “on the job” training at external sites.


Regent Training Centre’s Training for Work Co-ordinators are highly skilled at drawing out your best qualities and finding you the job that will suit you and your skills the best. Contact us now or free call 0800 REGENT (0800 734 368) today for more information.
