We have identified these priorities through internal development using industry insights from our engagement activities, administrative data and research commissioned by Ringa Hora.

This initial Workforce Development Plan presents a high-level summary of the people working in the Service sector today, the factors shaping the workforce in the coming years, and the actions we could take to develop the future workforce together. As our first plan, it is based on readily accessible, quantitative information, and qualitative insights gleaned from the many early conversations we’ve had with people from the sector.
Our research weaves together qualitative and quantitative information, to understand resilience and mobility in the Service sector, with a particular focus on Māori views and experiences.
The National External Moderation Plan has been created from guideline principles developed by Ohu Mahi Workforce Development Councils – the collective of the six WDCs. It has been developed to support your organisation in preparing for external quality assurance and moderation with Ringa Hora, and may also assist with developing internal quality systems.
A boost for the service sector with the transfer of funding from ServiceIQ to Ringa Hora is designed to support the development of industry specific skills leadership and brokerage projects in partnership with Service industries. In addition to the $3m funding, ServiceIQ has also gifted a series of insights reports as part of the project.
