Road to Success Roadshow

Road to Success Roadshow

The road transport industry has partnered with the Government to assist employers attract skilled regionally-based 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. This, we believe will assist people to get into our industry and provide operators with the support to take on new, inexperienced staff. 

The Government is currently offering a free fees scheme for road transport qualifications that aligns with the goals of Road to Success.

Qualifications are important to provide those in the industry with a sustainable career pathway and make the industry more appealing to those who want a change in career as well as to existing personnel. 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.

In October 2020 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 below. Each workshop will last for around one hour with Q&A time after. Please register your interest at success@rtf.nz.

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.
