IAG Trade Scholarships

IAG New Zealand's core business is based around helping more than one million New Zealanders recover when misfortune strikes. Our purpose is to make your world a safer place, which we put into practice each year as IAG settles around half a million claims.

It goes without saying that it is vitally important that any repair work is carried out by qualified experts. To make this happen it is necessary to have the expertise and skills of people across a range of professions and disciplines.

IAG has been supporting its trade industry networks since 2002 through the IAG Trades Scholarship Programme. Each year the programme inducts and supports new apprentices and trainees through the duration of their respective apprenticeships to achieve the end goal of being trade qualified. It also provides valuable management training for collision repairer administrators. So far over 5I5 apprentices and trainees have benefitted from the programme.

IAG partners with both MITO NZ and BCITO. These two industry training organisations provide the essential infrastructure and support for each apprentice and management trainee to complete their courses.

To find out more about the requirements of an apprenticeship, head to either the MITO or BCITO websites to learn more.
