ITP is leading MBIE's IT Skills Steering Group. This is your chance to shape the future of the tech industry.

From education to hire and training, having people with the right skills is essential for the IT industry to function, but do we have the right mix? How easy is it for you to sell your skills, and are employers looking for the right people? How do we bridge the gap? What part should on the job training play, and is our pipeline of kiwi talent coming through the education system adequately prepared? Is talent leaking away?

Whether you're still in education, on the jobs market, in the middle of your career, mentoring others we want to hear from you. Likewise if you're an employer looking to acquire new talent or develop the talent you have, your input is welcomed.

In this interactive workshop session, we will hear an overview of MBIE's current initiative and how ITP is contributing. We'll set up stations to discuss different parts of the skills pipeline to discuss the challenges, solutions and opportunities.
