Who We Are

Capital Training is a lower North Island-based, NZQA accredited, private training establishment (PTE) offering a wide spectrum of courses and qualifications to prepare people for the modern workplace.

Working within our mission statement “to empower people with knowledge and skill for autonomy”, we offer learners the opportunity to build their confidence and credentials for employment and further study, enabling the development of practical employment skills while building a record of learning achievement through national qualifications.

We have training centres in Lambton Quay, Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, Paraparaumu, Waipukurau and Otaki, as well as providing in-work training nationwide.

We are quality assured by NZQA – our latest External Evaluation Report can be found here: View Report Here!

At Capital Training We Believe That:

  • Everybody who wants to build their skills and autonomy deserves a second chance at education.
  • Everybody can learn and achieve with the right support.
  • Literacy and numeracy are fundamental to learning.
  • Training is best delivered by tailoring it to the individual through an individual learning plan and regular plan and review occurring between tutor and learner.
  • Our role is to progressively teach our learners how to independently manage learning, planning and goal setting.
  • Good learning material draws on the lived experience of our learners wherever possible.

At Capital Training we pride ourselves on providing each learner with an experience that meets their individual needs. If you have special requirements, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, autism, aspergers, dyspraxia, or physical difficulties, we have staff that can help you to achieve your goals, and resources that are tailored to your needs.

The Beautiful Thing About Learning

is that no one can take it away from you. ~ BB King
