What you should know about Competenz Skills For Industry
So why are 75 of companies not hiring apprentices? Small businesses in New Zealand are weak in people management skills and are less likely to hire an apprentice they have the most to gain from a management intervention. If New Zealand manufacturing companies think they are going to be able to hire skilled staff to fill their skills gaps without an investment in training, they’d better think again. To illustrate the looming issue, 64 of engineering manufacturers and 53 of food manufacturers believe they’ll need more skilled staff over the next two years. In comparison, 41 of food manufacturers had a preference for hiring skilled staff while a third acknowledged they’d need to train people.
The good news is 99 of food and beverage manufacturers and 97 of engineering and metal manufacturers train their staff, and companies in both sectors have a significant history of investing in on the job training. Furthermore most engineering manufacturing companies and 61 of food manufacturers see the skills of their staff as a cornerstone of their competitive advantage. In response to this, Competenz has had discussions with industry associations and industry leaders who have expressed support for a rationalised ITO structure and we believe to achieve this, the Government must play a leadership role. The paper says New Zealand currently has no co ordinated leadership from Government or the tertiary education sector around productivity improvement issues for businesses.
Training is an effective way to build the skills New Zealand businesses and New Zealanders need to get ahead in an increasingly competitive world.
