Economic Development NZ is intent on designing a professional development programme for all practitioners and associates throughout NZ. To ensure a quality, relevant and and best value programme we will be consulting with both members and non-members in the coming weeks; seeking feedback on what areas of learning they feel would be of value to them in their professional lives.
The programme will be designed to cater for the training needs of:
- individual economic development practitioners and associates,
- organisations charged with economic development goals and;
- elected officials
The surveys below are therefore segmented into those three categories. Can we encourage you to take five minutes out of your busy day to complete the survey relevant to you and in doing so, help us to help you!
The new professional development programme will be launched in 2018. Watch this space.
