Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) were established in October 2021 to give industries greater leadership and influence across vocational education.
Workforce Development Councils are being asked to build on the work they have planned for their establishment year and provide TEC with a clear narrative for how their work programme in 2022/23 will contribute to the achievement of the RoVE outcomes and other government strategies for vocational education and training.
Each Workforce Development Council will draft an Operational Plan informing TEC about their strategy, priorities and planned activity for 2022/2023. TEC will use these Plans to monitor their performance and provide advice to the Minister of Education on their progress.
To help Workforce Development Councils, the TEC has developed a Guide outlining the specific information TEC will be looking for in their Operational Plans. The Guide covers the strategic requirements for their Plan as well as the criteria for their operating and governing activities, and their approach to building key relationships, particularly with their industries
