Motivational training gives you the chance to work in a team, challenge yourself, build on your strengths, gain confidence and develop ways of working successfully with others. And at the same time, you’ll be improving your chances of finding a job.
Two popular courses are:
- Outward Bound – this course is held at Anakiwa in the Marlborough Sounds – it lasts for 21 days and it’s both challenging and rewarding.
- Limited Service Volunteers – this is a 6-week hands-on training/motivational course run by the New Zealand Defence Force in Burnham and Hobsonville Military Camps. It’s great for fitness, motivation and confidence.
Generally, anyone who’s unemployed and enrolled with us can go on a motivational training programme. But some courses do have certain conditions – for example, to join Limited Service Volunteers you must be between 18 and 25 years.
