AGGREGATE & QUARRY ASSOCIATION
MITO are looking for extractive sites to host students enrolled in their RockUp® programme.
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.
For more information, check out the MITO website.

ABOUT QUARRYING IN NEW ZEALAND
Aggregates are the most consumed bulk product in the world after water. New Zealand uses 9-10 tonnes of aggregate every year for each adult and child.
To build an average house, you need about 250 tonnes of aggregate - for use in concrete, asphalt, mortar and building products.
The quarry industry is committed to working alongside local communities and follows stringent planning, environmental and operating conditions.
