Tahi Ngātahi (Tar-he Na-tar-he) is being developed by NZ Shearing Contractors Association and Federated Farmers with support from ACC and WorkSafe NZ.
Tahi Ngātahi provides online multimedia training to increase the industry’s productivity, quality (i.e. welfare of ewes) and safety (i.e. compliance).
Who is the training for?
Tahi Ngātahi has two learning modules. One will train farmers, shearing contractors, managers and supervisors. The other is designed to train shepherds, other farm staff, shearers, pressers, and wool handlers.
The first learning module is available at tahingatahi.co.nz. It was created to test the value of an online learning module for sheep farmers and shearing contractors. The prototype received a warm welcome at the 2017 World Shearing Championships.
Our mission is to unify the Shearing Contractors of New Zealand by providing relevant, timely, practical information that affects their businesses in a cost efficient way.
We aim to be a voice for the industry in appropriate arenas, advocating sensibly to governance bodies and assisting in relevant industry initiatives, industry training and utilizing our leverage as a body to the benefit of our members.
There are now 400 trainees in training with the Primary ITO and Te Ako Wools are well on the way to this year’s target of 600.
The Te Ako Wools website will be live very soon and the Te Ako team will be presenting on Te Ako’s new training initiatives at the May Conference in Queenstown 17-18th May.
In the meantime for any information please just ring or email Jock Martin, Te Ako Wools Operations Manager.
