The Education-to-Employment Brokerage Service aims to raise the profile of vocational education and its place as a highly desirable pathway.

This service provides support for all secondary schools in the Rotorua region to enable them to consider vocational education as a pathway into employment and to support students to achieve that.
The key purpose of the Vocational Broker role is to strengthen connections between local employers and schools to achieve greater engagement in vocational education, employment, and sustainable careers for youth and to support regional economic prosperity.
