AGGREGATE & QUARRY ASSOCIATION

School Initiatives

ROCKUP®

MITO are looking for extractive sites to host students enrolled in their RockUp® programme for 2021.

The programme involves hosting a student possibly interested in our sector for one day per week, over a 10-week period please. This will give them exposure to our industry while completing a couple of Level 2 Unit Standards – you can find the criteria for these unit standards in the RockUp® brochure. Once we have sites identified, MITO will approach local schools for interested students.

This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our industry to potential workers, and demonstrate to these young people the benefits of our sector.

If you’re an employer or student interested in the RockUp programme, please get contact office@aqa.org.nz.
