Skilled: Back from left: Kieran Diack, Jordan Te Pania, Pepehi Kapea, Tawhia Nicholls and Joshua Bills. Front: Tom Cox, Joel Allen, Leevon Popata, Thomas Tangimetua, Morgan Toia, Treina Chaplin (Work and Income) and Jack Johnson (FITEC). The sixth Northland For- estry Straight to Work Industry Partnership programme has deliver- ed another nine highly skilled and reliable for- estry workers into a buoyant employment market. Attended by a record number of whanau, friends and representa- tives from the Limited Service Volunteer pro- gramme and the Auck- land Employer Services team the graduation marked yet another suc- cessful programme designed to meet the skills shortage for for- estry workers in North- land. Returning to work after three years on the sickness benefit was a proud day for Thomas Tangimetua and his fam- ily last week. Thomas and eight of his colleagues completed the eight week Forestry Straight to Work pro- gramme delivered by FITEC for Work and Income. I was sick and tired of not feeling well and not having a job,'' Thomas said. With supported from my whanau and church I began to understand that work was going to be the best thing to help me be well again.'' FITEC contract careers consultant Jack Johnson is one of the people credited for teach- ing the students the ingredients for success. Along with the practi- cal and theoretical aspects of the job Jack aims to create an environment that commands respect. We are here today to acknowledge the work these young men and women have done over the last eight weeks,'' Jack said. The first two weeks is about developing values such as reliability, being drug-free, responsibility and communication. Being drug-free from day one is mandatory and sitting up here today are the students' clean drug tests which prove to them and us that they have what it takes to be successful in their careers.'' I want to acknowl- edge Rowan Struthers from Hancock Forest Management as one of the first people to have the vision to put a for- estry training pro- gramme together.'' Northland is the sec- ond most forested region in New Zealand with many of the forests coming on line now. We think that the industry can sustainably go to 4 million tons a year which means we will be able to double the number of jobs,'' Jack said. The increased de- mand from China and India and local pro- cessors means Northland will continue to go from strength to strength.'' Eight of the graduates started work with local contractors immediately after completing the pro- gramme. After a week or two of work experience the remaining graduate will follow suit.
