Bay of Plenty


Toi EDA is the Eastern Bay of Plenty regional economic development agency serving the Ōpōtiki, Whakatāne and Kawerau Districts. Our LinkUp focus has the mission to help connect rangatahi, education and the world of work. Our activities under that kaupapa include Workforce-Development Information and research; supporting the Youth Employability Programme; producing resources for schools and employment service providers to use, like the EBOP Career Showcase and Careers and Jobs on our Doorstep Poster; supporting professional development, resources, and innovations that help scaffold rangatahi towards work for example by using The-WE3-Continuum-and-Activities. Class 1 Driver Licencing is a key focus for us. We support local initiatives.
