Inspiring Tomorrows Leaders

The Future Belongs To Those Who See Great Opportunities

Oceania Career Academy is New Zealand’s first Pacific-owned and led Private Training Establishment (PTE) for Trades. It builds on the Trades at School (TAS) Programme offered in schools since 2009.

OCA is working to achieve more young Pacific people in higher paid employment. We deliver NZQA Levels 1-4 vocational training for youths (predominantly Pacific) with a student-focused, career-focused and industry-driven programme.

We are NZQA accredited and use education as a vehicle to develop youth through employment skills training, bridging students from secondary school into skilled industry employment and higher education.

We have a proven track record acting as a “connector” between students and families, from schools and tertiary institutions through to employers providing skilled, well paid work.


Qualification Level 2 Certificate in Foundation Skills (Carpentry and Fabrication)

When Ivan Bakulich Tuita’ali’i decided conventional school wasn’t for him anymore, an uncle suggested the Oceania Career Academy would suit him better. Of Samoan, Maori and Croatian descent, the 17-year-old wanted to work towards an apprenticeship and a career in carpentry.
