Regional Workforce Plans

The Taranaki RSLG released its first Regional Workforce Plan (RWP) in 2022. The plan sets out regional aspirations, priorities and actions for current and future workforce skills development in the region. The plan focuses on Food Fibre and Whenua, and Energy Sectors.

The Taranaki RSLG released its Regional Workforce Plan Refresh in 2023. The plan sets out labour market themes which were identified through our first RWP as well as actions and recommendations for current and future workforce skills development. The Plan focuses on Health and Hauora in the Construction Sector, and Kaiāwhina Health workforce.

The plans focus on regional solutions to regional problems but also makes recommendations at a central government level where regional solutions may not be possible, or the challenge or opportunity is a national one.
