Kia ora koutou,
The Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) continues to ramp up, with plans this year to set up the Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) and have the first Transitional Industry Training Organisations transfer their Arranging Training functions to another entity.
In MARCH, this month, there are two opportunities to get involved and have your say in the:
- governance of the WDCs;
- design of Te Pūkenga’s operating model.
CIWDC Expressions of Interest closing 21 March
The Construction and Infrastructure Workforce Development Council (CIWDC) is aiming to take over Connexis’s Standard Setting functions from August. Before it can be established however, it needs a Council to govern it.
TEC is currently seeking Expressions of Interest from industry leaders to serve on the Appointments Committee.
The Appointments Committee will be recommending and appointing members to the CIWDC Governance Council. Those on the Appointments Committee cannot also stand for the CIWDC Governance Council.
We urge you to think about who would be a good representative for the Infrastructure industry both for the Appointments Committee and the Governing Council.
This is an opportunity to ensure our industry has a voice in the new vocational education system and provide a steer to TEC on the future requirements and investment in workforce skills.

Simply sign up and get started sharing your thoughts and viewpoints. Our Journey is available 24/7 and will be open for your comment until Friday, 19 March 2021.
