On 2nd and the 3rd of May 2023, the entire Year 9 cohort went to…
Unitec Trades Tour
Nine keen year 12 & 13 Rutherford students attended a Trades Tour at Unitec’s Mt Albert campus on Tuesday 25 May.
The Unitec Secondary School Trades Tour was designed to provide students with the opportunity to hear more about the various careers and areas of study offered within the Trades school at Unitec.
The tour took place across five different trade areas – Mechanical, Automotive, Electrical, Carpentry and Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drainlaying. Students spent around 25 minutes in each area looking at the physical workspaces and talking to lecturers.
Our students asked lots of great questions and were impressed with the amount of practical hands-on learning the courses provide (including building a 3 bedroom house as part of the Level 3 Carpentry course) and also the great training facilities on campus.
