Cargill Academy Education
As part of our employee’s employment we provide on the job training that includes teaching them skills needed to perform various work tasks, operate machinery, complete workplace paperwork, maintain time management and follow health and safety practices. We have in house assessors for the recognition of NZQA unit standards, so our employees can earn credits to help them obtain qualifications that they may not have had access to or been able to achieve at school.
As a recently registered Tertiary Education Organisation Cargill's offers employees regular training as part of our Cargill Academy Education program. The groups run during paid work hours and are tutored by skilled, contracted educators that make learning an enjoyable and exciting experience for all that choose to participate. This includes health and safety know-how, numeracy and literacy improvement, 101 for computers and learning to navigate the internet.
Our aim is to give all staff improved skills that lead to increased options and freedom in their lives including permanent employment in the open workforce.
