When you get an MPTT scholarship, you’ll be matched up with a mentor who we call a Navigator. Your MPTT Navigator acts as a coach who supports you from the start of your training and into your apprenticeship. They can help you with everything from getting your driver licence sorted to preparing for a job interview. By getting to know you personally, they’ll be able to give you the help you need. You can go to your Navigator with any problems you have along the way.

Navigators not only know about the trades industry; they have knowledge of Māori and Pasifika cultures and the related ‘real world’ experiences required to succeed in the trades. They’ll work with you one-on-one to help achieve your goals and ensure you’re ready for life on the job. Find out more about MPTT Navigators.
