Roofing programmes are on the move to Vertical Horizonz New Zealand (VHNZ)
The Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) is underway. RoVE is a Government reform aiming to improve vocational education in New Zealand so businesses and industry get their needs met more effectively.
The RoVE changes affect roofers through Skills. RoVE means Skills is transitioning the delivery of its on-job and off-job training and support for roofing programmes to Vertical Horizonz (VHNZ). This transition will take place on 1 September and all of the programmes and services will be carried over to VHNZ. Some of the Skills Account Managers will be moving also, and we’ll do everything we can to keep Account Managers with their apprentices.
You and your trainees will not notice too many changes during the shift from Skills to VHNZ. Most of what’s changing is behind the scenes. The information Skills holds about your employees will also transfer to VHNZ with the same terms and conditions. Don't worry - all your information will remain confidential and secure throughout the transition.
