Expressions of interest sought for new training programme

Okapu2 Trustees are currently in discussions with Landbased Training, an innovative Private Training Establishment, whose mission is to empower tauira with skills and knowledge through vocational education and training, which will help lead into long term sustainable employment.

We are now seeking expressions of interest from our rangatahi and whanau aged 16 - 50 who are keen to start on a course located on the farm.

The courses will be tailored to our own needs and fees free. Nationally recognised certificates can be completed as part of a course and can include:

  • quad bike safety

  • first aid

  • sheep and beef farming

  • fencing

  • pest management such as possum eradication

  • apiary

  • riparian planting

  • other courses as may be needed.

All this training and practical hands-on experiences will help you to:

  • Gain practical skills and knowledge

  • Prepare for long term sustainable employment

  • Work outdoors on our ataahua paamu me nga whenua

Please contact us if you’re interested

If you're rangatahi or can whakapapa to the Okapu F2 Trust through an owner, aged between 16-50 we'd love to hear from you.

Please let us know:

  • Which courses are you interested in - if they are not listed above, are there any others you would like to take place?

  • If you're keen to jump on board and start a course!

Please email us with your interest and feedback at
