Find my Workforce Development Council (WDC)

WDCs will give their industries and employers greater leadership and influence across vocational education.

WDCs will give their industries and employers greater leadership and influence across vocational education. Success for WDCs will mean employers – including Māori business owners – are confident that vocational education graduates are ready for work and that the future skills needs of their industry will be addressed by the vocational education system.

As well as directly benefiting employers, WDCs will improve confidence and outcomes across the sector. Providers can be confident their programmes are relevant to employers and endorsed by industry. Learners can be confident their qualifications will meet employers’ expectations and national industry standards.
