The 15 Regional Skills Leadership Groups (RSLGs) are independent advisory groups that are locally based and regionally led. They identify and support better ways to meet future skills and workforce needs in their regions, both now and in the future, and advise on actions to address these.
RSLGs are part of a joined-up approach to labour market planning that will see our workforce, education and immigration systems working together to better meet the differing skills needs across the motu. They are a fundamental part of the drive to build productive, inclusive, sustainable and resilient regions.
Their work is complemented by other initiatives targeting population groups, sectors and regional economic development. This includes:
- The Government’s Employment Strategy
- Employment Action Plans
- Industry Transformation Plans
- Identification of Regional Economic Priorities.
RSLGs also sit as part of the Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) and will work closely with the Workforce Development Councils.
