The National Trade Academy Ltd "NTA" was established in 2000 to offer a range of Pre Employment Training programmes for entry into Land based Industries including; Agriculture, Equestrian, Animal Care and Horticulture. This has now been expanded to include English for speakers of other languages.
We specialise in offering Dairy Farming programmes to international students who want to learn about the New Zealand Farming system and learn about how NZ technology, skills and knowledge makes us the world's leader in Dairy production. A more recent programme is our NZ Certificate in Animal Technology "Rural Animal Technician" Strand Level 5 which is very suitable to Veterinarian graduates who require more practical experience working with large rural animals in a rural Veterinary practice.
We also specialise in a number of English Plus Programmes including;
