Tāmaki Makaurau Regional Skills Leadership Group

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

The Tāmaki Makaurau 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 Tāmaki Makaurau Regional Skills Leadership Group’s first Regional Workforce Plan, “Building the Workforce for Better Jobs”, is an ambitious plan for workforce and skills development that delivers good skills, good jobs, good businesses, and ultimately, a good quality of life. With our region contributing nearly 40% of national GDP and 36% of the labour market, what happens here matters. The Regional Workforce plan outlines the workforce and skills barriers the region faces, and how we can find new ways of building a prosperous region, where no one is left behind.
