Another great story!
Southland father and son, Robert and Bobby Baird have recently received their forestry qualifications, proving you are never too old to learn.

While Robert has practical experience gained during four decades in the bush, he says vocational training like the qualification he has just done is helping keep people safe.

Competenz assessor Neville Muir worked with Bairds throughout their training programme.

“Bobby is very driven to succeed and very organised. He’s also very keen to continue upskilling his crew and there are a lot of different certificates still to do,” he says.

While Bobby is his boss at work, Robert turns back into ‘dad’ at the end of the day. “I give him a hand during the day when he’s got a lot of work on. We have a great relationship and it’s a magic thing to be able to do to work with your son.”

Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Derek Ereatara who shares his journey with Awanuiārangi.

The Bachelor of Humanities programme marked a turning point in Derek’s life. “The content – indigenous studies, policy and business – fit right in with what I wanted. I knew it would help me personally and in my work with whānau in the health sector.

“It helped me to think differently, that opens up your world view.” he says.

Looking at everything with fresh eyes “shifted, enhanced and reinforced” his focus, particularly in working with rangatahi who need one-to-one support.

Awanuiārangi was like a second home, and still is. You just feel welcome.
