Training and skills partner for New Zealand telecommunications companies


The Skills Organisation is the industry training organisation for telecommunications. It is our job to work with industry to ensure there are the people with the right skills and qualifications to meet the needs of companies, to develop more skilled and productive New Zealanders and contribute to a healthy economy. We are mandated by the Government to do our role and our organisation is grounded in industry ownership.


We first began working with telecommunications companies 15 years ago, shortly after industry training organisations were established in New Zealand.  Our work involves ensuring the industry has the qualifications and standards it needs to meet priorities, as well as fostering high levels of training achievement through regional training support and funding.
