Work Ready Kāpiti’s Annual Awards

The Work Ready Kāpiti  Annual Awards is back for its second year running!

This is a free to attend community event that celebrates the achievements of both Kāpiti youth, colleges and employers. 

We are excited by the calibre of students coming through our programmes and having seen an increase in employers by 100% this past year there are a number of very deserving people involved.

The event will be held on Thursday 7th of November at the Southward Car Museum. The winners across the five key categories will be announced here as well as the People’s Choice winner - a text to vote category open to the public will recognise one lucky local employer who has gone above and beyond to give youth opportunities. Information on voting opening will be posted to our website!

As Bryan Gundersen, Chair of Work Ready Kāpiti commented, ‘Our Awards event celebrates success and significant contributions to our programmes and all stakeholders and interested persons are welcome to share the occasion.”

The Annual Awards are a fantastic opportunity to take a moment and recognise all of the accomplishments of the year. Work Ready Kāpiti has a number of programmes that students and employers are now involved in that are proving invaluable in a student's journey to becoming work-ready. Their success stories are growing and they are seeing a number of students find relevant employment opportunities through both their #EmployerMeets and WEX - work experience placements.

All members of the community are welcome to join the celebrations, more details on the event can be found on the event listing along with information on how to RSVP.
