Industry training organisations

Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) co-ordinate structured training for employees, both on-job and off-job. This enables them to gain a qualification from the New Zealand Qualifications Framework while earning money.

ITOs are owned by industries, recognised by the government, and receive funding from both government and industry.

ITOs cover most of New Zealand's industries from traditional trades like building and plumbing, the primary industries, and manufacturing and retail, through to government and community services.

The Industry Training Federation represents ITOs.

Visit the ITOs page on this website for more information.
