Learners will see greater coherence across the food and fibre sector with clearly defined learning pathways and career opportunities. They will be able to access, through flexible delivery modes, food and fibre education opportunities when and where they need it.
Greater connection between industry and the education sectors results in better understanding of the industry and employment contexts, shared innovation and more rapid integration of R&D into programmes and value gains through alignment of non-formal and formal education provision to offer better upskilling and reskilling opportunities for employers and employees.
Greater emphasis on workplace-focussed learning results in learning opportunities that are valued, driving up demand from learners, Māori, employers and employees. Better work-ready graduates and improved business productivity result from collaboration, including shared practice, evidence, data and knowledge, and kaiako capability development.
