Tō mātou arotahinga mō te tau e heke mai ana | Our focus for the next year

Over the next year we will continue to progress the work that is already underway. A number of our year one actions will become overarching guiding principles for our future work.

Our guiding principles

  • Communicate analysis and insights on workforce and skills issues to stakeholders, including through Local Insights Reports, the Marlborough environmental scan, and engagement.
  • Collaborate on education to employment initiatives across the region, such as supporting the Education to Employment broker, schools, and industry to establish relevant academies in Marlborough secondary schools.
  • Influence efforts across all our focus sectors to help transition to a more resilient, low emissions economy, contributing to the Government’s target for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
  • Advocate for local data collection, presentation, and insights that are relevant to Marlborough, including Māori/iwi data.
  • Connect to the Te Tauihu Intergenerational Strategy, including by collaborating with the Nelson Tasman RSLG on Aquaculture.
  • Advocate for Mā Māori, Mō Māori, ki a Māori solutions to workforce and skills issues.

Our year 2 actions

Our year 2 actions build on the actions we have completed over the last year. We have taken this opportunity to update the actions about industry collaboration to take a wider, cross-industry approach across multiple businesses. This change has been driven by what we have learnt in the past year.
