Zero-fees until end of 2022

The New Zealand Certificate in Entertainment and Event Technology Level 4 qualifies for the government’s Targeted Training Fund, meaning zero-fees until the end of 2022.

All apprenticeships in NZ are now being funded to help employers and apprentices during the COVID recovery period; the fees are simply waived.

On top of that, there are funding options including Apprenticeship Boost: a payment to help employers keep and take on new apprentices. According to WINZ, this funding “can be paid for an apprentice who is self-employed if they’re employed or contracted by you.

You need to apply for your apprentice, and you need to have a training agreement between yourself, your apprentice and your TEC approved transitional ITO or provider. If you’re self-employed, contact the company overseeing your apprenticeship. They’ll need to apply on your behalf.”

You can read more on all the subsidy options under the Apprenticeship Support Programme on the Entertainment Technology New Zealand’s website (
