Canterbury pilot events

1 Aug 2010

During June and July 2010 we ran a series of Skills Highway events and activities in the Canterbury region. These events were part of the Department of Labour’s ‘Canterbury pilot’ of the Skills Highway.

The Canterbury pilot was the final stage in a comprehensive programme of development and testing of a new web based resource to help employers identify and take action on literacy and numeracy challenges in their workplaces.

Ashburton Business Expo

The Skills Highway Team was at the Department of Labour stand at the Ashburton Business Association's Business Expo on 14 and 15 July.

Foundation Skills Expo

This event was held in Christchurch on 30 June and brought together employers and foundation skills providers. ANZCO Foods, Canterbury Spinners and Ryman Healthcare shared their stories with attendees. There were stands from local training and literacy providers, plus the Tertiary Education Commission, Retirement Commission and two Industry Training Organisations.
