Lillian Kershaw – founder, teacher, mother, nanny and great nanny is a high school teacher by trade. Her passion lies in helping others learn, grow, and create amazing futures for themselves and their families. “It is important for people to know that if they don’t fit “the mould” there’s always a plan B!” Our students, their parents and grandparents often tell us that we are the perfect plan B!
When we say family business, we mean it. We are now into our third generation of Kershaw’s. Managers, tutors, administration staff and even our cleaners are family. You can’t help but feel safe and cared for when you walk in our doors.
We offer more than just training but a place of hope and motivation. It brings us the “BEST FEELS” to see our students leave our programmes confident, ready to work and ready for the world -building a brighter future becomes reality.

“What I completed at Kershaw Training enabled me to - A) have confidence, B) have the right skill sets and C) develop my skills further and land the job!”
“School wasn't for me, but when I came to Kershaw's it was all good. They helped me in the classroom, the workshop and it's even made me a better person at home.”
“I finished school early but didn’t have much of a plan. The "Get Ready" program was legit and it helped me get qualified with a NZQA Level 2 in Business Administration and Computing – I have a plan now!!”
“I wanted to be a builder but needed help with my entry assessments. I was told Kershaw’s was the place to go so I did. I completed with 100% attendance and smashed my entry assessment!!”
