Welcome to the Wellington Regional Workforce Plan (RWP) 2023. This is the first annual review of our inaugural RWP 2022. This document is designed to build on the RWP 2022. In this Plan you will find highlights from the last year that showcase some of our region’s achievements, actions we will focus on over the next year, the advice we provided to the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) to help focus their funding decisions for 2024, and a complete list of progress against the Year One priority actions.

The tohu used in this plan was created for the Wellington Regional Workforce Plan by Manukorihi Winiata (Ngāti Raukawa, Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Tūwharetoa).
Our vision and focus areas in our regional plan
As co-chairs of the Wellington Regional Skills Leadership Group (RSLG) we are pleased to release this Regional Workforce Plan (RWP) 2023.
There has been little change in the Wellington’s labour market since the Regional Workforce Plan was developed in 2022.
Since completing and launching our plan in August 2022, our focus has turned to implementation. Here are some highlights of our work so far.
This is an update on labour supply and demand in our region. It provides a workforce outlook for the RWP priority sectors: construction and infrastructure, manufacturing, health (kaiāwhina to nursing) digital technology, primary sector, and the visitor sector. This analysis informed our advice to the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) to help focus their 2024 funding decisions.
The RSLG made the following specific recommendations to the TEC in April 2023 to help focus their funding decisions for 2024 delivery.
Our RWP 2022 remains relevant and well targeted and continues to be valid as a longer-term strategy plan. The plan is sufficiently agile to shift with changing pressures and conditions.
