The problems at Taratahi were laid open, prior to its interim liquidation in December, in August last year.
Taratahi will deliver the a 13 week Level 3 'Certificate in General Farm Skills' programme.
This programme is perfect for those who need to up-skill, those looking for a career change or life-stylers.
Taratahi chief executive, Dr Donovan Wearing is pleased that they can now offer agricultural training in the Auckland region. "New Zealand needs an additional 1100 farm workers each year to address the skills shortage that the industry is experiencing. By 2025 MPI estimates that New Zealand will need 93,000 additional skilled workers in the primary sector and over 80% in vocational areas.
"We work very hard to make sure we are helping to address the skills shortage of the scale required, by training skilled students with a top attitude and aptitude."
Taratahi's point of difference in the agricultural training industry is their 'real training on real farms' philosophy says Wearing. "Taratahi students have access to over 7500ha of commercial farmland throughout New Zealand. Training programmes are predominantly practical on-farm, backed up by theory work."
In August 2014 Taratahi won the 'Primary ITO Trainer of the Year' award at the beef+lamb NZ Industry Awards.
Taratahi's own assets or assets they manage on behalf of others, now equate to over $100m. Taratahi has 50,000 stock units of sheep, beef and deer and milk 3250 cows per year.
Taratahi offers full-time courses, diploma programmes, extra mural study, short courses and STAR/Gateway programmes as well as the Primary Industries Trades Academy.
The residential campus is based near Masterton in the Wairarapa, with non-residential campuses in Northland, Rodney, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki, Hawke's Bay, Manawatu, Wairarapa and Southland.
