The issue 

Ākonga in work-based learning contexts will spend roughly 70 percent learning on-job with a work based Kaiako/trainer, and 30 percent off-job with a provider-based trainer. Currently there is a lack of support for work-based trainers to develop their training skills.  

Intended outcomes 

  • Identify examples of good work-based training practice 
  • Identify common needs for capability development of work-based trainers 
  • Tools and resources are developed and trialed to support work-based trainers 
  • Recommendations and summary of findings. 

The steps 

  • Step 1: Recommendations and summary of findings 
  • Step 2: Develop tools for capability development 
  • Step 3: Trial ability development solutions in the workplace 
  • Step 4: The development a suite of recommendations and associated strategies.

Researcher: Jackie Messam 

My curiosity for people paired with a strong background in staff development and programme design has led me to forming RippleEd. 

With a background in education and a strengths based, people centred approach, I have spent a vast amount of time supporting the capability development of leaders, technical experts and teachers in New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. 

I have a Master’s in Education, and I’m a qualified secondary teacher with a background in teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) and Japanese. I’m also an accredited CQ (Cultural Intelligence) and EC (Emotional Capability) trainer. 

I’m currently working with Te Pūkenga, PTEs, and businesses on a range of capability projects to upskill Kaiako in the workplace and on campus. 

Collaborator: We will be collaborating with seven small to large businesses in the construction and infrastructure industry  

Project expected delivery date: 22 March 2024
