Louise Rutter

Relationship Manager

Louise’s role is to partner closely with the off-site construction industries: frame and truss, timber joinery, architectural aluminium joinery, glazing, stonemasonry and brick and block laying sectors, identifying skills needs and advocating for those needs to be met both now and into the future. Louise is also responsible for engaging with the Auckland RSLG.

She is passionate about vocational education, having seen first-hand the positive impact gaining a trade qualification can have on a person’s life.

Looking to the future, Louise would like to see more employers connected to the vocational education system to ensure learners are qualifying with skills that are relevant and current to the industry they’re entering. Louise is excited about the introduction of skills standards from 2023, which will present opportunities for increased collaboration across the sector and a more flexible learner journey.
