New Zealand Certificate in Health & Wellbeing (level 4)

Careerforce are the government appointed body that sets skill standards and develops and facilitates the achievement of NZQA- recognized qualifications across all our sectors.

Why Apprenticeships:

Apprenticeships are the much-needed answer to improving the quality of healthcare support and services needed by New Zealanders now and into the future. We know our country has an aging population and we want to care for people in their homes for longer, yet at the same time the health and wellbeing workforce is an aging workforce with a growing skills shortage.

Careerforce has now released a variety of apprenticeship programmes for the health and wellbeing sectors – a first for New Zealand! On-job training opportunities are now available, covering a wide range of roles for those working in the health, disability, mental health, aged support, rehabilitation, social and community services.

An apprenticeship is a supported training delivery approach that leads to the New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing (Level 4) (120 credits).

These Apprenticeships have been developed by the sector, for the sector. The core value of industry-based training is that it sets people up with the right experiences, skills and knowledge, so workers in various roles can now improve their skills through on-job learning. The result: Apprentices can earn while they learn, gain nationally-recognised qualifications, support more complex health conditions and handle challenging social issues, resulting in better health outcomes for the New Zealand community.
