Real budget for industry training in June

Real budget for industry training in June (Maori and English versions)

Ka whakapaohotia te tino ràrangi pþtea mò te mahi whakangungu ahumahi à te marama o Hune

Ahakoa ngà whakapuaki o te ràrangi pþtea mò tºnei tau i whakapuakina ai tºtahi $10 miriona tàra mò ia tau, mò te whakangungu ahumahi, hei waitohu noa ºnei i ºtahi whakapuaki rahi kº atu kua kiia taurangi e te Minita mò te marama o Hune, e ai ki a Pieter Burghout, te tiamana o te Industry Training Federation (ITF).

Ka mòhiotia te tino pþtea mò te Whakangungu Ahumahi à te marama o Hune, kia puta rà anò te hua o ngà tirohanga ki te ràngai akoranga matua tuatoru.


Ko tºnei whakapuaki i tºnei rà, he koata noa iho o ngà pþtea e tika ana, ki te hiahia tàtou kia eke ki te 250,000 àkonga ahumahi i te tau 2007. E hàngai tonu ana tà tàtou haere kia eke ki te taumata tuatahi, arà, kia 150,000 ngà àkonga i roto i te tau 2005, ki tà ngà whakaritenga o te kotahitanga o Skill New Zealand, o Business New Zealand, o te Council of Trade Unions, me te Kàwanatanga. E titiro whakamua ana te ràngai whakangungu ahumahi ki te wà e toitþ ai te kaupapa matua o te Kàwanatanga, kia taea ai te whakapakari i ngà pþkenga kaimahi e hapa ana i tºnei wà. Ki te tutuki ºrà àhuatanga, ka eke ngà ITO me ngà ahumahi e akona nei à ràtou kaimahi ki tò ràtou tino teitei - à, e kore e whakapòreareatia tò ràtou takoha ki ngà whàinga pþkenga me ngà whàinga òhanga o te Kàwanatanga.

Ko te iwi Màori tºtahi 17 òrau o ngà Àkonga Ahumahi, tata ki te tòpþtanga o te òrau o ngà Màori whai mahi. Kei roto ngà àkonga ahumahi katoa i ngà kapa kaimahi o Aotearoa, nò reira, he mea pai tºnei mà Màori.

"E 23,517 ngà tàngata Màori i te Ràngai Whakangungu Ahumahi i te tau 2004, à, i runga i ngà whàinga o te Kàwanatanga i pºnei màtou ka piki ake i te 40,000 ngà àkonga Màori à te tau 2007.

He mea tino pai te whakapuaki ka whakapikia ngà pþtea mò ngà akoranga pþkenga mahi mò ngà Kuratini, nà te mea e tautoko ana te ITF i te kaupapa me utu e te Kàwanatanga ngà tino utu tþturu mò te kawe i te akoranga, ahakoa kei whea. Nà reira e tika ana kia tòtika te pþtea mò ngà akoranga i ngà Kuratini, kei reira nei ngà whare utu nui, ngà taputapu, me ngà kaimahi e tika ana. Waihoki ko ngà Kuratini e hora ana i ngà huarahi e iti iho ana te utu o ngà rawa - pºnei i ngà akoranga i te wàhi mahi, ko te kaituku mahi tonu te kaiako - tòna tikanga kia iti iho ngà pþtea tautoko mà ràtou.

" E mea ana te ITF taihoa ia e whakaputa kòrero whakamutunga mò tºnei ràrangi pþtea o te marama o Mei, kia kitea rà anò te pþtea tþturu à te marama o Hune," e ai ki a Pieter Burghout.

Real budget for industry training in June

“Today’s Budget announcements of an additional $xxm a year for industry training foreshadow larger announcements the Minister has promised in June, said Pieter Burghout Chair of the Industry Training Federation (ITF).

The real budget for Industry Training will be in June once the outcome of the tertiary sector spending reviews is known.

“Today’s Budget announcement is less than a quarter of what is needed on the way to the Government’s target of 250,000 industry trainees in 2007. We’re on target to meet the first milestone of 150,000 trainees during 2005 as per the Skill New Zealand partnership with Business New Zealand, the Council of Trade Unions and the Government. The industry training sector looks forward to certainty on the Government’s approach to solving skill shortages. With that certainty, ITOs and the industries they service will achieve the full potential they are capable of – and the contribution that make to the Government’s skills and economic objectives will not be placed at risk.

Maori are 17% of Industry Trainees, nearly twice the proportion of the employed workforce. All industry trainees are in the workforce so Industry Training is working for Maori.

“There were 23,517 Maori in Industry Training in 2004, and with the Government targets we were expecting over 40,000 Maori trainees by 2007.

“The announcement of higher funding rates for trades training for Polytechnics is welcome because the ITF supports the principle of the government paying the true costs of provision no matter what the area – and therefore trade training completed in Polytechnics which requires expensive buildings, equipment and staff needs to be suitably funded. Correspondingly, Polytechnics deploying education pathways with lower input costs – such as on-site/employer imparted learning – should receive lower levels of funding support.

“The ITF is reserving its judgment on this May Budget until we see the real budget in June”, said Pieter Burghout.
