The Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) is the tertiary education provider for Hawke’s Bay and the East Coast and offers over 160 qualifications – from certificates and diplomas to degrees and postgraduate qualifications.
EIT has been a proud supporter of the A&P Hawke’s Bay Wine Awards for 20 years now. EIT is providing staffing expertise as well as the venue for wine judging and the award ceremony. At this year’s event, over 80 EIT hospitality and wine students will be cooking and serving canapés and dishes during the event, excited to showcase their culinary capability.
EIT has always played an important role in training people into skilled jobs throughout the region. EIT prides itself on the employability of their work-ready graduates and also on the sound relationships with local businesses and communities.
EIT’s School of Viticulture and Wine Science offers New Zealand’s widest range of viticulture and wine science programmes, e.g. the new and fees-free NZ Certificate in Viticulture (Level 4) and NZ Certificate in Cellar Operations (Level 3). The school’s strong connections with the local wine industry give students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in wineries and vineyards in the area. The modern learning facilities also feature a purpose-built winery and an organic vineyard.
