Supporting those who support others
BCITO, an industry training organisation that oversees apprenticeships in the building and construction sector, identified an issue. Many apprentices and trainees get ‘stuck’ and don’t complete their apprenticeships, often because of problems with numeracy and literacy. Many employers are keen to help, but don’t necessarily know how. We designed a series of short modules for employers and managers. Each module has practical take-aways employers can use to help their apprentices learn and get to the next stage of their training.
Practical tools for educating
A new partnership
This was our first time working with Ariki Creative, and it has been a fantastic experience for us. The Ariki team’s designs are stunning, and they generously shared their the knowledge with the project team. As there is an ever-growing demand for authentic Māori design and imagery in Aotearoa organisations, we hope to collaborate with Ariki again on future projects, both with BCITO and others.
“For my first time working on a project like this the Like-minded staff guided us extremely well all the way through. They were flexible to our requirements yet firm when needed to keep the project moving. Our finished products are fantastic.”
