Youth employment transition programme

The Christchurch training sector is mourning the recent passing of Nicolas Murray, registrar at the Christchurch campus of Academy New Zealand.

Taua Mahi operations manager Jason Griffiths credits Nick with giving him his ‘big break’, as Jason moved from trades work into youth development. Jason spent 2010 as construction tutor at the Christchurch Academy, taking up an opportunity to pass on work ethics and trade skills to young people. Jason is grateful for Nick’s non-judgmental approach and for supporting and enabling Jason to follow his dream.

Jason remembers Nick as a firm but calm man, who was respected by staff and students alike.

Nick inspired Jason to carry on into youth work, and during his time at the academy Jason worked with youth and staff from the Canterbury Youth Development Programme, leading to his current role with Taua Mahi.

New equipment adds capability for Taua Mahi

The Taua Mahi programme has a 1.5 ton tracked excavator available. This can be provided as part of a contracted service (for example, along with a tipper truck, licensed operator and work crew), or alternatively hire of the excavator only can be arranged. A point of difference is the fully-enclosed cab, enabling all-weather operation.
