HAVE YOUR SAY
The Government’s proposed changes are intended to allow learners to study for qualifications delivered consistently all over New Zealand, with greater assurance that they meet industry-approved standards, and with better quality teaching and learning support.
The Government wants to create a sustainable, nationally and regionally networked vocational education system. This integrated system could better meet the needs of learners and employers and link provider-based and work-based training.
The Government has assured us that the proposals will not change anything for learners.
If you have just enrolled or if you are partway through your study you will be able to fully complete your study at NorthTec.
If you enrol after 1 January 2020, the government's proposal would mean you’d likely be enrolling at the new New Zealand Institute of Skills & Technology – and over time you’d likely have more choice of programmes on offer at your local campus and online. The programmes would be consistent nationwide, so even if you were studying at a physical campus, you could move around the country and continue your study without having to transfer between institutions.
