New Zealand Institute of Skills & Technology (NZIST)

Created by the Education (Vocational Education and Training Reform) Amendment Act, effective 1 April 2020, the NZIST will be New Zealand’s largest tertiary education provider – the cornerstone of a cohesive, sustainable vocational education system.

It will start by bringing together the existing 16 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics, and over time will develop the capability to support work-based, campus based, and online learning in a unified system.

It will have the national and regional reach required to become a long-term skills training partner for firms and industries, enabling learners and employers to move between workplaces and other educational offerings and between locations as their needs change.
