Course helps with jobs (NZ)
A four-week cellar hand course at the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology in Blenheim has helped unemployed people get jobs in Marlborough’s wine industry. One year has passed since NMIT introduced the course, in conjunction with the Ministry of Social Development and Work and Income, and in partnership with wine companies Indevin, Constellation and Pernod Ricard. Demi Galle, 21, and Zacharaya Floyd, 22, were two of 10 people from around Marlborough who took the opportunity to turn their life around in last year’s intake. This was their second year of working the 7am-7pm shift at Indevin for vintage, reports The Marlborough Express.
