A boost for the service sector with the transfer of funding from ServiceIQ to Ringa Hora (Services Workforce Development Council) is designed to support the development of industry specific skills leadership and brokerage projects in partnership with service industries.

In addition to the $3m funding, ServiceIQ has also gifted a series of insights reports as part of the Hinonga Kōkiri / Head Start Project. Ringa Hora is excited to partner with our service industries to deliver a vocational education system that is industry led, Te Tiriti partnered, regionally flexible and ensures vocational learning excellence.
