Vakameasina Graduates - Summer 2017

A few photos of the many Hortus teams graduating from doing the fantastic Vakameasina course. Vakameasina is the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) Worker Training programme that provides English language, numeracy and literacy training to hundreds of RSE workers.

The programme provides guidance in financial and personal goal setting, budgeting and workers’ rights. Ensuring a greater understanding and responsible attitude to money. Vakameasina also teaches leadership, computer skills, solar panel installation, machinery maintanence, general health issues and many more... A mix of necessary skills for their time in New Zealand and excellent knowledge they can take home.

Congratulation guys we are all very proud of you and thank you Vakameasina for investing so much time and energy into our lads. The evening was topped off with some excellent music - watch the video on our Facebook page
