The Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) is creating a strong, unified, sustainable vocational education system that is fit for the future of work and delivers the skills that learners, employers and communities need to thrive.
A key priority of vocational reform is to better recognise the needs of Māori communities and
acknowledge that Māori are significant employers with their own social and economic goals.
The changes prioritise learners who weren’t well served by the previous system, including Māori.
A group has been set up to make sure the changes reflect the Government’s commitment to the
partnership between Māori and the Crown – Te Taumata Aronui. This will give Māori community and employer views on tertiary education, including vocational education and training.
Please email VET@competenz.org.nz with any RoVE-related questions.
You will find more detailed information about RoVE and WDCs on the
Tertiary Education Commission’s (TEC’s) website.
