This is the beginning of a GrowingNZ directory of primary industry-related resources for teachers.
We invite teachers and careers advisers to select an activity to get involved in and get an insight into the opportunities that exist for young people in the primary industries.

This is a work experience programme that is designed to meet the needs and interests of students, schools and employers. It offers the opportunity for students to experience work settings in a manner that is manageable for schools and businesses. It is based on a carefully researched programme structure. This format was developed and is being used with success in the United Kingdom and Australia. It has been piloted in New Zealand and is ready to go.
