Helping Kāpiti youth transition into work, with the skills local employers are seeking.

Here at Work Ready Kāpiti we run several programmes within the region with a focus on ensuring youth are ‘work ready’ when it’s time for them to transition into the workforce.

These include:

Our newly launched work experience programme - WEX.

The Kāpiti Work Ready Passport - aimed at assisting youth in developing key skills to ensure they are work ready.

Events - we host regular #EmployerMeets and an Annual Awards event, all aimed at facilitating connections between Kāpiti youth and employers.

We believe Kāpiti will benefit both socially and economically by young job seekers being work ready and bringing fresh perspectives to local businesses.
