Sue joins Waihanga Ara Rau having previously spent six years with Connexis ITO as a learning support and guidance advisor in their National Field Team. Her current role sees her engaging with employers and industry associations to ensure the civil suite of NZQA credentials is meeting learner and employer needs now and into the future.  Sue is also keen to explore other ways she can support the civil sector’s workforce development challenges. 

“quality targeted training can be the ultimate competitive advantage for employers”

Looking to the future

It’s a privilege to be part of RoVE (the Review of Vocational Education).  Waihanga Ara Rau stakeholders now have an opportunity to reimagine the way NZQA credentials are developed and delivered. 

Outside of work

You’ll either find Sue at the Hampton Downs racetrack, walking the beautiful Mt Maunganui beach, baking up a storm in the kitchen or on skis enjoying the vast terrain of the Whakapapa ski field.
