We offer a range of workshops for 15 - 19 year olds.

School Holiday Workshops

There are over 100 programmes on offer at Unitec. Imagine if you could upskill in one of these areas during the school holidays.

When you attend a workshop you'll learn from experts, and even go home with a certificate of participation. Best of all, they're free. Instead of payment all we ask is that you give us a koha of canned food. All proceeds go to people in need (including our own Unitec students).

It's all about you and your journey. Adding to your skill set and getting a feel for tertiary life at the same time.

For the 2023 School Holiday Workshops, we are currently in the process of confirming workshops for our students. All info and ability to Book will be available by the end of the week at the latest.
