Otago Regional Skills Leadership Group

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

The Otago 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

A core output of the RSLG is the development of a Regional Workforce Plan that will identify jobs the region will be creating, the skills needed for these jobs and the most effective ways to meet these workforce needs, both regionally and nationally.

This will help to create a joined-up, regionally led approach to labour market planning, which will provide a clear view on how we can better meet the differing skills needs across the motu.

Written collectively by our RSLG, the Regional Workforce Plan brings together in-depth regional economic analysis and extensive stakeholder input to highlight our region’s labour supply and demand trends and begin to identify where change is needed in order to achieve a highly skilled and coordinated labour market in Otago.

Local insights reports

RSLGs are the eyes and ears on the ground in each region when it comes to labour market planning. Their regular insights reports are based on qualitative intel from stakeholders and partners about the local labour market.
