Rotorua Employment Skills Project
Rotorua Employment Skills Steering Committee
The Rotorua Employment Skills Project was commissioned in November 2002 by Waiariki Institute of Technology, Work and Income, Tertiary Education Commission, and Rotorua District Council. Its two purposes were to gather information from local employers on job vacancies and skills needed, both now and in the proceeding five years, and to develop action plans to resolve sector-specific skill shortages. A large number of individuals and organisations participated in the strategy development process by way of a written survey, face-to-face interviews and industry sector workshops. With the exchange of information, this inclusive project strengthened relationships within industry sectors and between industry, education and training providers, central government agencies and local government.
