Managed by the 20/20 Trust

KiwiSkills is managed by 20/20, appointed by the international ICDL Foundation as the official ICDL Accredited Partner for New Zealand.

Kiwiskills previously received financial support from a Lottery Grant, which enabled us to offer it free of charge to some jobseekers. That funding has now run out and Kiwiskills is no longer free – but it’s still just as vital for job security, jobseekers and career changers and a great investment in yourself.

The Trust’s vision is ‘to enable all New Zealanders to fully participate in the digital world’, and the 20/20 Trust has a 20-year history of successful digital literacy programmes, for families and whānau, unemployed and under-employed, refugees, school students and others.
