You need to be living in New Zealand to do a Modern Apprenticeship.
Modern Apprenticeships are for 16-21 year olds, but talk to a Coordinator about other training options.
A Co-ordinator is someone in your region who will help you get started and help you along the way. A Coordinator is not your employer.

Most Modern Apprenticeships programmes take between 2 to 4 years.
Employers don't always advertise positions as 'Modern Apprenticeships', so let them know at interviews that you want to be one.
Try newspapers, work websites, and sending out your CV. Parents, friends, and your Coordinator can help too.
