Industry Training Graduations

MTFJ runs Industry Training Graduations to recognise the achievements of recent graduates and provide an opportunity for the trainees and apprentices to celebrate with their families, friends and employers.

Graduation ceremonies are attended by graduates who have recently completed a National Certificate qualification with an Industry Training Organisation (ITO), the local Mayor and Councillors, and the ITOs themselves.

The graduations are a time for celebration as well as thanks to local employers for their ongoing commitment to youth and training.

As of 2018, ITO Graduations take place in two "runs" - a May run and a November run. 

Most graduations take place in November.  

In May 2018 the following Councils are hosting a ceremony: 


Gisborne District Council - 25th May 2018 

Hastings & Napier District Councils (joined ceremony) - 2nd May 2018

Marlborough District Council - 31st May 2018

Matamata-Piako District Council - 27th April 2018  - 


Each Council has different criteria to be eligible to graduate, so get in touch with MTFJ if you are unsure.

Invitations will follow to those eligible in the weeks before each ceremony - if you think you have missed out then let us know!

If you have any questions relating to ITO graduations please get in touch with James Mather
