The road transport industry has partnered with the Government to assist employers to attract staff and alleviate the workforce issues currently experienced by the road transport industry.
RTF, with the backing of an industry governance group, has created a training programme, Te ara ki tua Road to Success, that meshes together on-the-job practical training with theoretical components, leading to qualifications and employment in the industry. 
“We believe this will assist people to get into our industry, stay in our industry and provide operators with the support to take on new, inexperienced staff,” the Forum says. 
The Government is currently offering a fees-free scheme for road transport qualifications and that aligns with the goals of Road to Success.
Adds the RTF: “Qualifications are important to provide those already in the industry with a sustainable career pathway, and to make the industry more appealing to those who want a change in career, or are just starting out. 
“Microcredentials, which are NZQA endorsed, are being developed to further enhance employee prospects, provide a bridge to existing industry qualifications and create transferable skills.” 
Road to Success also seeks to leverage off the accelerated licensing principles so drivers may move through licence classes more quickly.
This month, Road to Success representative Graham Sheldrake and RTF’s Mark Ngatuere are conducting a roadshow to present and get feedback on the design of the programme from road transport operators. 
A schedule of these workshops, including venues, dates and times is available at https://www.rtfnz.co.nz/road-to-success-roadshow/. Each workshop will last for around one hour with Q&A time after. Please register your interest at success@rtf.nz with Road to Success roadshow in the subject line. 
With the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation, arrangements are subject to change so continue to check this page for the most up-to-date information. For more information please contact Mark at mark@rtf.nz.
