Regional Workforce Plan

In July 2022 the Marlborough RSLG released Te Mahere Ohumahi ā-Rohe o Te Tauihu o Te Waka-a-Māui, the Marlborough Regional Workforce Plan. The plan sets out regional aspirations, priorities and actions for current and future workforce and skills development in the region. It is focused on creating a more resilient, sustainable economy and workforce and an enabled Māori economy.

The plan was developed in consultation with the local community. It highlights local labour supply and demand trends and focuses on what Marlborough can do as a community to achieve a highly skilled and coordinated regional labour market over the longer term.

It includes 6 cross-cutting themes and 5 focus sectors, and contains an action plan for regional solutions that will benefit every sector in Marlborough, as well as working to ensure everyone in Marlborough is enabled to participate in the labour market.

In 2023 the Marlborough RSLG carried out the first annual review and refresh of the 2022 plan. The 2023 Marlborough Regional Workforce Plan builds on the 2022 plan and does not replace it.
