An innovative joint venture Maori trade training initiative involving Tainui, Te Wananga o Aotearoa and Wintec has been launched in Hamilton.

Waatea News reports the building and carpentry course will start on Wednesday with 16 students. It has taken more than a year to develop.

Te Wananga o Aotearoa chief executive Bentham Ohia says the recession is an ideal time for job trading to prepare for an economic up turn.
