Reskilling & Retraining our Workforce


100,000 New Zealanders are forecast to lose their job over the next two years.

It’s important that we have the programmes and systems in place to help these Kiwis retrain and find a new job.

National’s Skills package targets many sectors and will see Kiwis get back into the driver’s seat.

Our plan will see displaced New Zealanders into jobs quickly and provide strong incentives for our tertiary education sector to deliver short training courses aligned with the skills businesses need.

While we’re focused on creating new jobs and protecting the ones we currently have, it’s important we have a strong education and technology sector to support those who may need to retrain.
