We commissioned BERL economics to develop a report of changes to New Zealand's workforce between Census 2006 and 2013. It covers the occupations covered by the industry training and apprenticeships sector, as well as the overall workforce. It shows some astonishing shifts over a relatively short period - with some significant implications for making sure our system is set up to upskill the workforce of the future.
The VET reform group is a collaborative initiative by a collective of ITOs and ITPs to consider a new outcomes framework for Vocational Education and Training in New Zealand, and its potential success indicators. It is currently developing a discussiion document for distribution in late 2015.
The 'manifesto', tabled at 2014's ITO and ITP "Workforce for the Future Conference" outlined these proposals.
