Digital Technologies Skills Plan

Over the last 8 months, IT Professionals NZ has been leading the Skills workstream of the Digital Tech Industry Transformation Plan, looking at the underlying causes of the skills issues in our sector and what we can do about it.

In July 2021 we released the draft plan, and need your feedback to make sure we've got it right.

This report is a wakeup call

Our industry is suffering greatly from a mismatch of skill supply and demand, however the only way we're going to fix this long-term is if we invest in domestic development.

And we have a plan. The draft Plan outlines 10 Actions that New Zealand needs to take, each with a set of initiatives. There is no silver bullet, and each Action is addressing a different part of the pipeline.


But do we have it right?

We really need your input before the draft plan is finalised.
