The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), invites submission of responses from suitably qualified and experienced organisations or consultants (including consortia) to design and implement of a RSE Worker Training Programme II procurement to support the development benefits of the Recognised Seasonal Workers Policy by providing further numbers of RSE workers with access to transferrable work skills training during their time in New Zealand, all as outlined in the Terms of Reference.
The Recognised Seasonal Employment (RSE) Worker Training Programme has trained approximately 4,000 RSE workers since its inception in 2009. Training courses have included English language, numeracy and financial literacy in the Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay, Nelson, Marlborough and Otago.
The RSE migrant scheme meets a low skilled, seasonal labour gap in the New Zealand horticulture and viticulture industries. Many Pacific RSE workers have limited formal education and come from rural Pacific communities with limited employment opportunities. The RSE Worker Training Programme maximises worker time in New Zealand, providing training and opportunities to acquire transferrable skills.
The outcome of this RFP will be the selection of a preferred Supplier to implement the RSE Worker Training Programme Phase II, to include increased rigor into the course curriculum and create learning opportunities outside of the classroom with an e-learning platform. This phase will provide RSE workers with access to skills training during their time working in New Zealand, delivering training to a minimum 6,000 workers over a five year period.
