A Skills Framework for the Food and Fibre Sector

Food and Fibre Skills Framework

Muka Tangata is seeking feedback on a draft Food and Fibre Skills Framework. We’re looking to develop a common language to describe skills and knowledge. This will make it easier to understand which skills are relevant across many food and fibre sectors and workplaces, and which are more specialised. It will help create pathways between different qualifications and sectors, and make entry into the food and fibre sector easier. It may also help with recognising skills that have been gained outside of the formal qualification system.


EMPLOYERS – Have you ever wondered…  

  • How can I get the training I need for my employees, when I need it?  
  • How can I really know what skills and knowledge my new employees bring?  
  • How can I build on and extend those skills to meet the needs of my workplace?  
  • How can I keep on top of what’s happening across my industry and plan for that?  
  • How can I get the most out of every dollar and hour that I invest in training my employees?  


Thank you to those who sent their feedback through the employer and employee polls about flexibility and transferability in the workplace. Prezzy cards have been distributed to the winners.

The findings of the poll and a report on the Food and Fibre Skills Framework will be available in April 2024.
