We've got you covered. Whenever New Zealand changes Alert Levels, we pull together updates for our apprentices and the companies who host them for their on-job training.

The Masterlink Operations Team sends emails and texts with the latest information, while our Regional Managers reach out on the phone or online, maintaining regular check-ins and offering support.

If our apprentices are required to stay home in lockdown, we make sure they are doing OK and using their time productively to complete any outstanding assessments or unit standards. 

Masterlink Training also provides additional online learning free of charge that apprentices can complete at their own pace.

Supporting the health, safety and wellbeing of our apprentices and their hosts is at the centre of everything Masterlink does.

Check out our Wellbeing Guy, Kereama Carmody's tips for surviving lockdown, and Masterlink + Master Plumbers Wellbeing on Tap programme.
