Build a Bach

"As the walls of the house go up, so does the confidence of the students", Chris, WITT Build a Bach tutor

This joint venture between Taranaki Futures and WITT sees students build a house for sale under the guidance of WITT tutors and industry mentors.

• Running annually since 2014
• Five houses have been built and sold
• Collaborative project that involves more than 40 local organisations contributing material, mentoring and support
• Self-sustaining – profit from the sale of each house is reinvested in the next year’s project
• Has introduced more than 80 youth to a trades pathway, 70% of whom have gained employment or taken other pathways into trades

If you are interested in joining Build a Bach, please see your school careers advisor.

To see Build a Bach in action, go to the bottom field at WITT (near Hendrie Street).
