Waikato Regional Skills Leadership Group
The Waikato Regional Skills Leadership Group identifies and supports better ways of meeting future skills and workforce needs in the region.
The Waikato 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:
The RSLG is chaired jointly by Brendon Green and Keith Ikin.
Regional Workforce Plan
The Waikato RSLG released its first Regional Workforce Plan (RWP) on 6 July 2022. The plan sets out aspirations, priorities and actions for current and future workforce skills development in the region.
It mainly focuses on regional solutions to regional problems but also suggests actions at a central government level where regional solutions may not be possible or the challenge or opportunity is a national one. It will be refreshed annually.
