Hawke’s Bay Regional Skills Leadership Group

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Skills Leadership Group identifies and supports better ways of meeting future skills and workforce needs in the region.

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Skills Leadership Group (RSLG) is one of 15 RSLGs set up to identify and support better ways of meeting future skills and workforce needs in our regions and cities.

RSLGs are part of a joined-up approach to labour market planning that sees our workforce, education and immigration systems working together to better meet the differing skills needs across the country. Find out more about the RSLG kaupapa:

Regional workforce plan

The Hawke’s Bay RSLG is releasing its first Regional Workforce Plan in mid-2022. The plan will set out regional aspirations, priorities and actions for current and future workforce skills development in the region.

It will mainly focus on regional solutions to regional problems but will also suggest actions at a central government level where regional solutions may not be possible or the challenge or opportunity is a national one.

The plan will be available here once it is released. It will be refreshed annually.

As part of the development of their initial Regional Workforce Plan, the group has outlined the focus areas for the plan in their region. More details about this can be found in the 2 page summary below.
