HAVE YOU REALLY FOUND OUT that THIS JOB AND THE TRAINING SUITS YOU, BEFORE YOU INVEST YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON IT?
Try going to three work places, questioning, visiting, offer yourself for work experience, before spending your time and money.
Your character, personality, self discipline, ethics and values are just as important as your academic results. Doing your best and achieving well academically proves you can apply yourself and achieve well at anything you put your mind, heart and soul to.

WORK FORCE DEVELOPMENT COUNCILS
Six new Workforce Development Councils formally established today, 15 May 2021, will ensure people graduate with the right skills at the right time to address skill shortages, Education Minister Chris Hipkins said.
Every industry in New Zealand will be covered by one of the following Workforce Development Councils:
- Hanga-Aro-Rau – Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics
- Waihanga Ara Rau – Construction and Infrastructure
- Muka Tangata – People, Food and Fibre
- Toi Mai – Creative, Cultural, Recreation and Technology
- Community, Health, Education and Social Services, and
- Services Industries.
“The newly formed Workforce Development Councils will play a fundamental role in creating a unified vocational education system that will bring together industry and educators to make sure New Zealand’s workforce is fit for today’s needs and tomorrow’s expectations,” Chris Hipkins said.
“They will have a forward, strategic view of the future skills needs of industries and will help industry achieve greater influence over what and how training is delivered, by influencing government investment, setting skill standards and playing a leadership role across their relevant industries.”
The Councils are a keystone change of the Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) programme, and will help to build a workforce with the skills needed to aid in our recovery from COVID-19.
