In a session on Education for Work, Honè provided an overview of the New Zealand ITP sector and our mechanisms for industry engagement in governance, teaching, and program and qualification development.
Participants included government agencies, industry partners and training institutions that have been designated as community colleges. In a pilot scheme to start in 2013, these institutions will undergo significant change management processes involving new models in governance, organizational structure, curriculum development, industry engagement and quality assurance.
PINZ was one of two New Zealand representatives in an international field including the US, UK, Germany, Canada and Australia. PINZ’ participation was supported by Education New Zealand.
