The technical experts who create magical performances and events have a new qualification to harness their skills, through Skills Active Aotearoa, the industry training organisation for the performing arts.
The Chair of Skills Active Aotearoa, the ITO for sport, exercise, recreation and the performing arts, has described the one-week extension for submissions on the vocational training reforms as “paltry”.
Māori leaders in the Vocational Education sector gathered last Thursday and agreed the proposed Reform of Vocational Education was being rushed through, and called on the government to extend the consultation period and engage with Māori to involve them in the changes.
Chair of Skills Active ITO, Sam Napia, has issued a strong “wake-up” message, asking Māori leaders to get involved to protect the vocational interests of Māori, following the haste with which Education Minister Chris Hipkins is trying to push through reforms of the vocational training sector in only six weeks.
This information is for Skills Active trainees, apprentices, employers and industry stakeholders about the government's Vocational Education Training (VET) reform proposal. Read on for some general information about the changes, as well as what they would mean for Skills Active and for you.
