Good skills for good jobs

Vocational education actions

  • The RSLG supports working with Te Pūkenga to ensure a comprehensive delivery of vocational education across the region.
  • The RSLG supports the review of the value of current active labour market programmes in Tāmaki Makaurau following the completion of the national review of ALMPs by MBIE.

Key milestones

  • The RSLG is working closely with Manukau Institute of Technology and Te Pukenga to support secondary school’s transitions and to ensure that learners are engaged and supported within the system.
  • The RSLG hosted Te Pukenga to discuss alignment with the RSLG’s advice to the TEC. Key shifts in Te Pukenga’s transformation of the vocational education system include opportunities for delivery mode flexibility, working with marae and community as delivery partners to address vocational education access disparity.
  • The RSLG is closely working with MSD to initiate a deep dive with industry sectors with industry labour market programmes and engage with industry and employers to better understand Active Labour Market Programmes (ALMP) and understand what is working and is fit for purpose.

Anticipated outcome

  • To ensure Te Pūkenga is successfully delivering vocational education across the region to those who are underserved and hard to reach communities across Auckland, especially beyond the central regions and the isthmus.
  • To support MSD to delivery effective labour market programmes for the region.
