In February, the government proposed big changes to trades training in New Zealand. Along with others in the trades industry, we went to workshops and consultations about the proposed plans and encouraged everyone to have their say.

After these discussions, we created a written response to the government’s plans, outlining our collective views and recommendations. As a consortium, we agree there is a need for reform. However, we don’t support all the details of the current proposal and we have emphasised the need for close consultation with Māori and Pacific communities. Please read our full submission below.
