Advice for 2023 Investment to the Tertiary Education Commission September 28th, 2022 We’re here to drive transformational change in vocational education to deliver the skills our industries need. One of the ways we can do this is through the investment advice we are mandated to prepare each year for the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). It is with pleasure that we share our Advice for 2023 Investment to the Tertiary Education Commission. We make our recommendations based on our current understanding of industry expectations and regional needs. We see four key areas for future investment: Regional initiatives that will have an immediate, significant impact for industry and employers while paving strong career pathways for learners Providers who focus on growing engagement with Māori businesses Prioritising programme consolidation at Te Pūkenga, especially in pre-employment and pre-trade courses Supporting providers that deliver quality, equitable outcomes for learners that align with industry needs. This advice leverages the deep knowledge we have already gained through our engagement with industry, employers, Māori businesses, iwi and hapū, and Regional Skills Leadership Groups, as well as the breadth of experience and expertise within the Hanga-Aro-Rau tīma. We look forward to partnering with TEC on this in the coming months as we evolve our thinking and listen to and support the industries we serve.
