What's Tahi Ngātahi?
Tahi Ngātahi (Tar-he Na-tar-he) is being developed by NZ Shearing Contractors Association and Federated Farmers with support from ACC and WorkSafe NZ.
Tahi Ngātahi provides online multimedia training to increase the industry’s productivity, quality (i.e. welfare of ewes) and safety (i.e. compliance).
Who is the training for?
Tahi Ngātahi has two learning modules. One will train farmers, shearing contractors, managers and supervisors. The other is designed to train shepherds, other farm staff, shearers, pressers, and wool handlers.
The first learning module is available here. It was created to test the value of an online learning module for sheep farmers and shearing contractors. The prototype received a warm welcome at the 2017 World Shearing Championships.
When will the full version of Tahi Ngātahi be available?
The full version of Tahi Ngātahi will be out in June 2018. We need time to design and improve the learning modules. We are adding more features and support materials to the final product.
What will it cost me?
The first learning module is available at no cost. When the full product is launched in 2018 there will be a nominal fee to users to cover costs.
How can I help?
Training designed for sheep farmers, shearing contractors and their staff needs a lot of input and testing from sheep farmers, shearing contractors and their staff. Please contact Trish Ryan if you would like to make a difference and are happy to share your opinion.
