WE’RE ON A MISSION

To motivate school leavers across New Zealand - inspiring the next generation of tradies by sharing our stories of success, both within the plumbing & creative media industries.


Curated by digital and social content creators Logan Dodds & Jesse James, the Trade Up Collective has been founded to inspire school leavers to consider a career in the trades. Travelling around New Zealand delivering free inspiring talks, or more hands-on half day seminars, senior school students benefit greatly from these sessions.

Let us inspire your students

Book us for an engaging Tradie Talk, or a more hands-on Trade Up Workshop, for your senior school students.

 

TRADE UP: tradie talk (free)

Back by popular demand, the Trade Up Tour is hitting the road again in 2019. After great success last year, we’re excited to tour the nation once more, motivating and inspiring school leavers.

We can come to your high school and share our free fun and interactive presentation, highlighting the benefits of a career within the trade sector.

This tour has been made possible with support from our great mates over at Plumbing World.

TRADE UP: half day workshop (p.o.A)

If you’d like us to dive deeper into the ins-and-outs of trades, we can provide a half day seminar.

This is an exciting fresh faced initiative to captivate and engage students, giving them a taste of what it would be like to pursue a career in trade.

In our half day (three period) workshop, students will learn practical skills for the plumbing trade - giving them valuable skills and knowledge to help prepare them mentally and physically for the next step in their career.

As a follow on from the Tradie Talks, we also offer hands-on workshops.

These are more intimate, half-day sessions which answer the crutial WHAT, HOW and WHERE questions many students have.

  • What does a career in the trades look like?

  • How do I begin?

  • Where can it take me?

Workshops provide an introduction to life in a trade, teach hands-on skills (plumbing), financial literacy and shine a light on mental health awareness.
