This deliverable is focused on developing and putting in place engagement models with key partners and stakeholders.

This action is led by Tania Hodges JP who is focused on staff and iwi and Te Taumata Aronui, the iwi leaders education group. Board support for Tania comes from Maryann Geddes, whose focus is apprentices and trainees; Brett O’Riley, focused on employers and industry; Dr Linda Sissons CNZM for ITOs and WDCs; and Dr Sandra Grey for ITP students.

What we're working on this month

We're developing a model that ensures we're aligned with the whole Reform of Vocational Education work programme, taking advantage of every opportunity to engage broadly with stakeholders. Stakeholders can also email feedback to a monitored inbox.

Coming up

We'll be engaging with workstreams to establish workshops with key stakeholder groups seeking feedback and encouraging co-design opportunities. We'll report on our progress here.
