Reform of Vocational Education (Rove)
The Ministry of Education has announced major reforms for apprentice training through their review of vocational education (RoVE). The reforms will see the creation of a single national institute with a network of regional polytechnic campuses.
- The existing model needs reform.
- Issues including tutor shortages, substandard facilities and a lack of innovative training methods to convey rapidly evolving technologies must be addressed.
- With critical plumbing skills shortages in New Zealand, we do not want any reforms to discourage employers from taking on apprentices.
- We are working with Master Builders and Master Electricians to present collaborative industry feedback as the reforms are implemented.
- The best outcome for industry apprentices in world-class facilities.
- Industry-led training delivered by high-quality, innovative and financially viable providers.
