Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) update
On Thursday 14 May 2020, the Minister of Education, Hon Chris Hipkins, announced the formation of all six Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) would be fast-tracked for establishment by a target date of October 2020, ahead of the original target of mid-2021, to help support New Zealand’s COVID-19 recovery.
