Home / The Plan / Priorities of the Plan 2020 – 2025 / Supplying and Developing the Workforce
Workforce supply is potentially seeing the greatest game changer ever as COVID-19 redefines employment and gives visibility and value to essential workforces including Kaiāwhina. Also new on the horizon are the education and training opportunities that could be realised as part of the Review of Vocational Education. This priority also acknowledges the diversity of communities in Aotearoa and the desire to have a workforce that can support and where possible reflect them. The challenge for this priority is to move quickly but also in time with employer and stakeholder needs, recognising demands on resources and competing priorities.
