The New Zealand Government is proposing a change to vocational education. UCOL has participated in the consultation process and will post updates here accordingly.
What are the proposed changes?
The New Zealand Government is reforming the vocational education and training system to secure a sustainable future for New Zealand's institutes of technology and polytechnics (ITPs). UCOL is supportive of the government’s proposal, and is taking a lead in developing Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) tailored to our rohe.
Whilst changes are now underway at Government level, its business as usual at UCOL with our focus on our students, providing quality vocational education, training and research.
What will it mean for me?
The Government have clearly stated that learners, and potential learners should continue to study and enrol. Certificates, diplomas, degrees and post graduate options are all a part of the future, and it’s important that if you want to study, that you do.
The changes indicate a bigger, better and brighter future for vocational education in the UCOL rohe.
