Shakti Education Traning & Advisory Company ( SETAC)
SETAC intends to provide new immigrants, refugees and international students with education, training and advocacy services, enabling them to integrate into the New Zealand workforce and the mainstream society. The educational courses will be NZQA accredited.
To facilitate the process of settlement for migrants and refugees in New Zealand, through appropriate education, training and work placement.
Our aim mirrors the government's recognition that skiled employment is a key precursor to successful settlement.
New Zealand has seen a steady growth in the number of migrants in the past few years. In 2003, the government introduced the Skilled Migrant Category, ensuring an influx of skilled migrants to New Zealand .
The new category is part of a new skilled migrant policy that will see New Zealand shift from being a passive recipient of residence applications to actively recruiting skill and talents that match skills shortages in New Zealand .
And yet, employers are still facing labour shortages, particularly in the area of skilled labour, as misconceptions about migrants' ability to contribute to the New Zealand labour market prevail.
Benefits of employing migrants
- Employers can celebrate and expand the cultural diversity that is in New Zealand in the twenty- first century. Their reward will be attracting diverse talents, abilities, perspectives and cultural knowledge to your work-force. Since they make a deliberate choice to come to New Zealand , migrants are often very eager and enthusiastic employees.
- Employing migrants increases opportunities to develop new business networks of overseas customers or suppliers in an increasingly globalised marketplace. A multicultural mix in the workforce of a company or a nation makes it easier to communicate with countries around the world, both culturally and linguistically.
- The attitude of staff and their relationships with their colleagues can improve through having diversity in the workforce. It encourages tolerance and understanding of other cultures in the workplace.
What SETAC can offer
We provide migrants with the tools needed to be a valuable asset to organisations. We can provide the employer with skilled staff from 20 different countries and a vast range of industries.
If we do not have a suitable candidate on our records we will actively search for the right person in New Zealand or overseas. SETAC will match employers with suitable employees at no cost to the employer.
SETAC will ensure that the candidate put forward for the vacancy has the necessary skills for the job and an understanding of the New Zealand work culture.
We will be providing NZQA accredited educational courses, Job Skills training programmes and Employment facilitation programmes.
