Forest Protection Services together with Te Matarau and Northtec, developed a proposal for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment under the kaupapa  He Poutama Rangatahi, creating oppotunities for tai tamariki 15 - 24 years of age to gain qualifications whilst working fulltime within the industry. Fast tracking the tai tamariki to leaders within the forestry industry.
