As part of the wider national Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, the Government is reforming the vocational education and training system. This is one of the four “big reviews” that form part of the Education Work Programme.
The Reform of Vocational Education brings together the original Review of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system, led by the Ministry, and the Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITP) Roadmap 2020 project, led by the Tertiary Education Commission, which is looking at ways to secure a sustainable future for New Zealand’s institutes of technology and polytechnics (ITPs).
We have received valuable input from the sector and its stakeholders through initial discussions on the VET system review and substantial engagement on the ITP Roadmap.
The Government is currently considering this input in detail and expects to consult publicly on the next stages of the work early in 2019.
