On-Job Training in New Zealand- Meeting Industry Needs

Jenny Gibbs from the Skills International Team presents an overview of on-job training in New Zealand- that is, training for work and employment typically undertaken by people currently in a role, as opposed to training for people before they take up a role in an enterprise.

Key elements of on-job training, including how training is delivered, competence is assessed, quality assurance undertaken, are described. The funding, benefits to enterprises and employees, economic benefits, challenges and case studies are also described.

How this definition meets industry needs is covered. The implementation of how on-job training is carried out and Industry Training Organisations’ (ITOs) role in the model is described.

The model of on-job training will be demonstrated by two case studies from Skills International Limited.
