Your feedback is very important to us. Some employers have told us that they haven’t had time to participate in the survey to provide their feedback and thoughts, so we have extended the survey closing date till 11 January.

MSD has recently launched Mana in Mahi – Strength in Work. This new programme is designed to link young people with employers who can provide a pathway to an industry training qualification or apprenticeship, while giving them a full-time job.

To make Mana in Mahi as successful as possible for young people and employers we’d appreciate your help.

This short survey is for Owner/Operators or Managers who are responsible for the training and/or support of new staff.


We would appreciate 5 minutes of your time to help us understand:

  • your views on apprenticeships or industry training
  • what supports employers can provide (or if they need some support themselves)
  • whether these supports match with the types of supports young people may need.

The survey is voluntary and anonymous. Whether you take part or not will not impact any service you receive or could receive from MSD.

The information collected from this survey will help us to improve Mana in Mahi so that the right supports are available for both employers and young people. We want Mana in Mahi to work for you!

We’re interested to know what industry you work in, but we don’t need to know your name or the name of the company you work for.


We’re using Joy Business Academy to run the survey on behalf of MSD
