Waikato Regional Skills Leadership Group
The Waikato Regional Skills Leadership Group has been established to identify and support better ways of meeting future skills and workforce needs in the region.
The group is one of 15 Regional Skills Leadership Groups (RSLGs) in New Zealand, set up by the Government to identify and support better ways of meeting future skills and workforce needs in our region.
The groups provide independent advice, which employers and government agencies will act on to help re-employ, redeploy or retrain workers and entrepreneurs who have lost their jobs or closed their businesses.
They are part of a joined-up approach to labour market planning which will see our workforce, education and immigration systems working together to better meet the differing skills needs across the country.
