The Skills Organisation

As the professional development experts for the public sector, our role is to provide high-quality, relevant workplace learning programmes for employees in local and central government organisations.

We provide a range of programmes, such as core public services, business administration and management to adult education, dispute resolution and compliance. We also cater for more diverse, specialist programmes. These programmes are linked to qualifications registered on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF).

The Skills Organisation is a corporate member of IPANZ and provides generous financial support to help sponsor events and activities.
