'This, along with more New Zealand apprenticeships, further strengthens the Government’s commitment to workplace-based learning'.

Also announced was $2.3 million over four years for the Refugee English Fund, to provide fees-free study for refugees so they can progress to higher-level tertiary study or employment.
