About 4Trades

From entry to exit ... For Trades takes care of your apprentice


Our For Trades Apprenticeship programme is one of a limited number of Group Training Organisations in NZ. Established by the Malcam Charitable Trust in 2002, For Trades operates as an independent charitable trust, supported and managed by the Otago Chamber of Commerce.

For Trades provides an invaluable programme for helping young people into apprenticeships and helps to address Otago’s need for skilled and qualified workers in the trades sector.

We offer:

  • We take care of compliance costs and payroll processing
  • We take care of the responsibility and risk, HR and performance review
  • We endeavour to source available funding for host businesses in order to reduce their costs.

Find out more about our comprehensive support for your business and your apprentice.
