Work Ready Passport

Building stronger communities through active employment solutions.

By partnering with local employers, Chamber of Commerce, Council and the local secondary schools to

• Equip youth with “work ready” attitude and experience to prove it.

• Provide real support for young people to make successful transitions from school into training and employment

• A tailored pre-employment assessment tool for employers

The programme provides learning pathways for secondary school students from year 9 – 13
 or youth at risk programmes. Including adults struggling to find their way.

Work Ready Passport subjects are embedded within the existing school curriculum
so students can achieve NCEA level 2, therefore it’s a smart choice.

All college students are eligible to collect evidence of their skills and experience in
support of ten employer identified work ready skills.

10 Employability skills are:

1. Work experience
2. Communication
3. Restricted driver’s licence
4. Team work
5. Being drug free
6. Life skills
7. Personal wellness
8. Managing your money
9. Workplace health and safety
10. Academic achievements

Led by industry to help school leavers become ready for work.
The Work Ready Passport was developed over several years after conversations
 with many employers to identify what is work ready and how do you prove it.

Quality assurance by Skills to ensure the programme meets employer needs across the country

Providing highly skilled employees for your workforce. Encouraging youth to become part of your community.
