Skills Active Aotearoa is New Zealand’s industry training organisation (ITO) for sport, recreation, exercise, outdoor recreation and the performing arts. We are a government-funded organisation and our role is promote sport and recreation careers and workforce development, create world-class, nationally-recognised qualifications, and support workplaces to train staff. That means providing employers and business owners with solutions for qualifying staff through recognising the training and experience they provide on the job. These solutions provide value to businesses and a competitive edge in the marketplace. Industry training organisations are well recognised in New Zealand’s tertiary education sector and the qualifications developed by them are quality-assured by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).
