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.

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.

Feedback from Trade Up Tour 2019 to date :

“They were professional in their presentation and passionate
about their trade. I found their message motivating and am sure it
resonated with many of the year 11s thinking of "where to next?"

“I thought they were outstanding, made me question my decision of
going to uni. I left that assembly wanting to be a tradie. They related
well to the boys and put on a great presentation. I would highly
recommend them.. A great initiative to promote getting a trade”

“They were absolutely inspirational. The Year 11 cohort were transfixed.
They really sold trades as a lifestyle choice. By the end, I wished I had
trained as a plumber.”
