Congratulations to Jono Little who has signed on with Lower Hutt based Harbour City Plumbing Master Plumbers and Brown Arm Boys Drainage Master Plumbers with a plan to start a plumbing and drainage apprenticeship in 2021.
Jono completed Gateway placements with the businesses in 2019 and 2020 and quickly proved himself to be a very capable and hardworking young man who enjoyed the camaraderie and outdoors work. Jono is a keen sportsman, excelling at Rugby and Softball, so was up for the challenge and happy to do whatever needed doing as a strong team player.
Brad is also a great promoter of the Gateway program generally and has given us connections in other trades after showing them the benefits of the program. Gateway is not only a great way for students to see if they are genuinely interested in a trade, it’s an opportunity for business to see if a student would make a good employee and, one way or another, encourage new people into their industry.
Well done Jono and all the best with your career and future sporting endeavours.
