Since 2005, Southern Directionz has facilitated the delivery of the successful TradeQual initiative which celebrates the achievements of Southlanders completing apprenticeships.

The annual presentation evening, held each November in partnership with the Southland Chamber of Commerce, has the backing of Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) and education providers, and highlights of the profile and values of trades in the community and the career opportunities available in the trade industries.

Along with recognising the achievements of the trade training graduates, TradeQual also endorses the contribution of employers and ITOs who have supported them through the training process.

The 2020 edition will be held at the Ascot Park Hotel on Friday, 6th November, 2020.

Please keep an eye on our website and the Southland Chamber of Commerce for more details and to find out if you are eligible to participate in the evening. Further information is also available for your local Industry Training Organisation (ITO) contact.
