We are impressed to see how the tutors motivated our rangatahi to learn and support them when things felt hard. The 16-week programme opened their eyes to what they can achieve and gave them a sense of direction. Whanau, community and the industry all benfit from this programme.
- Simon McGillivray, Deputy Principal
I knew I liked working outside and being hands-on but until I did this course, I didn't have the confidence to give horticulture a go. The tutors made learning easy and the skills they taught me have set me up for a better future. I can see that if you work hard and have a positive attitude, there are a lot of opportunities to get ahead and do well in this industry.
- China Ngati, Student
Fruition knows how to deliver programmes that make it possible to keep working while you study. I got a lot of support from my tutor and employer throughout the course which gave me the knowledge I need to take on more challenging role with more responsibility. Upskilling was a win-win for the business where I work and for me and my family.

The horticulture sector needed to employ an additional 7,800 workers to achieve our development plans, and a further 26,300 workers were needed over the next 13 years to replace the natural attrition of workers. Horticulture is the new growth industry for New Zealand. The attraction of another 34,100 into the industry will simply not be enough!
