Survey Seeks Employer Views on Education and Training

Employers: got an opinion on Northland’s education and training? Your opportunity to share your views could be on its way.

Questionnaires are being mailed to about 3000 Northland employers as the latest step in developing a skills action plan for the region’s key industry sectors.

Among other aspects, the questionnaire lists training courses currently available in Northland, and asks employers for feedback on their effectiveness.

It is being sent to employers in Northland’s key industry sectors of pastoral farming, tourism, forestry and wood processing, horticulture, marine construction, aquaculture, retail and general construction.

The survey results will help to shape a regional plan focusing on practical skill development initiatives.

“The objective is to provide more relevant education and training, and the employment survey will provide us with an assessment of Northland’s existing training options, as well as the gaps we need to fill,” said Enterprise Northland chief executive officer Brian Roberts.

The regional skills action plan will be made available for submissions before its scheduled release in July. It is being driven by a working group comprising the heads of Enterprise Northland, Career Services rapuara, the Tertiary Education Commission and Work & Income.
