These videos show how businesses and their industries can benefit as the reformed vocational education and training (VET) system gains momentum. 

Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) and Regional Skills Leadership Groups (RSLGs) work to ensure the right skills are being developed to meet market needs now and in the future. Their work benefits businesses, industries, learners, regions, iwi and communities.

By engaging with WDCs and RSLGs, employers and industries can influence what education and training gets delivered. We encourage everyone to make the most of the opportunities to grow a skilled workforce.
