Decisions on reform of sector announced

Published on

Whitireia and WelTec Chief Executive Chris Gosling has welcomed the Government’s announcement regarding plans for New Zealand’s vocational education system.

The Minister’s announcement clearly reflects the importance of vocational education and training for New Zealand and our local communities. 

The decision to bring together off job and on job training in to an integrated system is particularly welcome and provides the best basis for ensuring our vocational training system can respond effectively and flexibly to our changing economy and evolving world of work.

We look forward to working closely with the central agencies, industry training organisations, other institutes of technology and our communities to ensure that the principles and objectives of the plan are achieved through the implementation process.
