2021 Matt Thompson

Matt Thompson

Apprentice Development Coach  /  National

At Cook Brothers Construction, we love developing our team and seeing each individual grow in their role. Matt will closely work with all our Apprentices to ensure they receive the support they need, keep up with bookwork, and apply their knowledge to a practical setting. He will mentor apprentices to get through their qualifications and orient them around the various opportunities they can do at Cook Brothers.

Matt has a strong background in construction. He went overseas to start his own construction company, where he also enjoyed training his apprentices. Once Matt returned to New Zealand, he began teaching at Otago Polytechnic and since then has completed two more degrees in adult education and tertiary learning. 

We are proud to do our part, ensuring that New Zealand has a pipeline of skilled workers to support our future, helping apprentices stay connected to employment and regional communities thrive.
