Whitireia and WelTec are part of Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology, together with all the other Polytechnics and Institute of Technologies in New Zealand.
From 2023, all Whitireia and WelTec learners will be enrolled with Te Pūkenga, instead of Whitireia and WelTec. Right now, our people will continue to support our learners. They will still be enrolled in the same qualification and will continue to learn in the same way, in the same place, with the same people.
Being a part of Te Pūkenga means we will be more connected to the other organisations delivering vocational and applied education in Aotearoa New Zealand and we will work with them to share skills and knowledge to better help you succeed.
We are excited to be part of Te Pūkenga which has been set up as part of the Government’s Reform of Vocational Learning. Te Pūkenga is creating a network of online, on-campus and on-job learning to give learners more flexibility in what, where and how they learn.
You will see more communication about this change over the next few months. We want to reassure you that the learning of our tauira will remain our priority.
Education is changing and Whitireia and WelTec is changing with it, so our tauira/learners can find success in a world that’s moving and changing faster than ever before. At Whitireia and WelTec we nurture and guide individual students as part of a community so they are confident and equipped to navigate their way in the future world of new jobs and ways of working.
