The 2015 Competenz annual report highlights the results Competenz has achieved over the course of last year, with a focus on where Competenz is moving towards in 2016/2017.
“Greater industry involvement in 2015 has given us more insight into industry’s needs and concerns for training in the 37 sectors we cover. We have built on industries’ expressed needs for consistent and high quality training with one point of contact through expanded ‘enterprise-wide’ training facilitation with organisations such as Heinz Kraft and Real Journeys," says Competenz Chairman Mike Simm.
“We will continue to focus on the flexibility, responsiveness and quality outcomes that industry expects.”
The report also acknowledges the work of former Competenz CEO John Blakey, and welcomes Fiona Kingsford to the CEO role.
"John adroitly steered Competenz through a period of intense change and growth to position us as one of the highest performing ITOs in New Zealand. We wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement and welcome him to the Board," says Simm.
"Fiona has been with Competenz in a variety of roles for the last eight years, and most recently masterminded the integration of the merged Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) and led the development of the 2020 strategy. Her appointment has been welcomed enthusiastically by staff and industry."
