The Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Open Polytechnic, invites you to our RoVE Lunch with Minister of Education, the Hon. Chris Hipkins

No events to show


The single biggest barrier for business growth and confidence in the Hutt Valley and wider Wellingon region is increasingly being unable to employ the right staff.  

If labour shortages are holding back your business, you need to know about RoVE. Recently announced by the Minister, RoVE is the ‘Reform of Vocational Education’.

RoVE has been introduced as a direct response to ongoing labour and skill shortages.

The reform’s aim is to create a strong, unified, sustainable system for all vocational education that delivers the skills that learners, employers and communities need to thrive.

The new system will have a stronger focus on employers, delivering the skills they need, providing more support for their employees, and ensuring greater consistency in vocational education across the country. Longer term, this will increase the number of employers who are engaged
in vocational education.
