In August 2023 we initiated a project to work with industry to develop four micro-credentials to support the wool harvesting industry. Development of Wool Harvesting micro-credentials 2023 – Muka Tangata.
We are working with industry leaders and vocational education and training bodies to research, analyse and construct a workable solution for the industry.
The Wool industry has acknowledged the lack of a successful industry training model.
This work is informed by research undertaken by the Food and Fibre Centre of Vocational Excellence and work we are doing to map non-formal training delivery to formal qualification development.
