Reform of Vocational education.
Published: April 27, 2021
Issue for Business: BusinessNZ is supportive of the ambition of RoVE to create a more effective and efficient system to deliver the skills industry needs. We remain mindful of the challenge of large-scale change and the risk of disruption to the skills pipeline, particularly given the challenging immigration settings. The positive response to Apprenticeship boost from business is heartening, and we are working to make sure that businesses continue to have access to support to ensure we can continue building the skills pipeline in years to come.
Action: BusinessNZ submitted on Workforce Development Council OIC, and is working with officials on governance for Worforce Development Councils and Regional Skills Leadership Groups.
Outcome: BusinessNZ immigration and skills manager Rachel Simpson is working to accelerate workforce planning to meet skill challenges.
