Alex McLeod from Redsky 365 embarked on a journey to run a 12 week ICT training programme in conjunction with the MSD educating a group of participants to work in the IT space.
The programme was delivered at Te Aroha Marae and is a first for something like this to have been undertaken by MSD. Learning on the marae accelerated the training process. It gave the participants a familiar, comfortable environment to study and greatly supported the learning outcomes.
These incredible individuals graduated from the course with flying colours and 6 months later are able to apply the skills they have learn’t at Ngā Wairiki Ngāti Apa to consolidate their digital infrastructure.
The program was a huge success and we’re so excited to see what the future holds for these incredible people and how a program like this can propel others interested in the industry.
