The Government is putting $1 million into trades training for Maori in Christchurch.
Tertiary Education Minister Steven Joyce says it brings to $24 million the amount so far invested in Skills for Canterbury programmes.
The Maori trades training initiative is a partnership between the Christchurch Institute of Technology and the Ministry for Maori Development.
Trainees will be offered a fees scholarship for training and a grant for tools for those who move into apprenticeships.
The Government wants to build up Christchurch's skilled workforce for earthquake reconstruction.

Oh joy, yet another racist scheme. Why should Maori have a special fund? Why not just bump up the existing scheme to $25 Million? I would rather our tax dollars be used for ALL New Zealanders, and not race based.
