Regional Workforce Plans

The Wellington RSLG released its first Regional Workforce Plan in early August 2022. The plan sets out regional aspirations, priorities and actions for current and future workforce skills development in the region.

The Regional Workforce Plan has people and partnership at its heart. The Wellington Regional Skills Leadership Group’s long-term vision is a region where we work in partnership for a skilled and inclusive workforce doing quality work to cultivate innovation, prosperity and resilience for all. Mā pango, mā whero, ka oti ai te mahi.
