Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics Workforce Development Council

Consultation is now closed.

An Order in Council is required to formally establish the Workforce Development Council (WDC) as a legal entity. During the consultation period feedback was sought on the proposed name, the industry coverage, and the governance arrangements of the WDC.


Context

Te Whakahou i te Mātauranga Ahumahinga, the Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE), is preparing for the establishment of the six Workforce Development Councils. Once established, each WDC will help their industries take a lead in making Aotearoa’s workforce fit for today, and the future.

The Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics WDC interim Establishment Board (iEB) was appointed in June 2020 to develop the proposed content for its Order in Council. As part of the Order in Council development process, the iEB engaged with its industries, to test and seek initial feedback on its draft proposals, and to start building connections across the new WDC industry groupings.


Consultation process

This consultation was undertaken by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) on behalf of the Minister of Education. The consultation was open from 16 December 2020 to 5 February 2021.

After consultation closes, the Minister of Education considers the consultation feedback, and makes final decisions regarding the content of the Order in Council.

Next, the Order in Council will be drafted and go through the legislative process, which will formally establish the Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics WDC.
