Hoe Rua Work-based Placement Programme 2019


Hoe Rua work-based placement is a partnership between an Addiction service provider (host), Te Rau Matatini and an individual (placement) on work-based placement.  The placement allows one to experience ‘work’ and an opportunity to gain and apply new knowledge, and skills within a workplace setting.


The aim of the Hoe Rua work-based placement programme is to grow the number of people working in addiction treatment organisations by providing an opportunity to gain on the job real skills. The programme offers new placements or a fixed term internship up to twelve months of work-based placement with an approved host organisation.
