At the end of 2013, Careerforce commissioned some research in order to better understand how to increase participation, engagement and completion of its workplace-based qualifications for Pasifika peoples. This research was carried out by Tina Rose, from Education Unlimited.
Careerforce wanted to gauge the varying and unique perspectives of industry training for Pasifika peoples. Fifteen stakeholders with significant understanding of the training landscape, respect from their communities and first-hand experience of training were interviewed. They spoke from the heart, with humour, and articulated a genuine desire to see training for Pasifika increase in their sectors. They gave Careerforce honest feedback about the ITO itself and provided an insight into the challenges and barriers facing Pasifika engagement in training.
