On Thursday night, Koha Kai held their second annual Trainee Achievement Awards night at Invercargill Working Mens’ Club. This is the opportunity the Trainees get to be recognised with their families there to celebrate with them as they continue to gain skills and move closer to employment.

Last year, only one Trainee graduated the course, which has 11 units or levels which must be mastered. This year, seven trainees achieved all their units, and are now looking at gaining open employment in their chosen field, based on the skills they have learned through Koha Kai.

About 120 whanau members and invited guests attended the event, and celebrated the continued achievements including Helen Leahy from Te Putahitanga O Te Waipounamu and Bruce Campbell from ministry of Social Development.
