2013 Performance

Future focus of the tertiary sector

The future focus of the tertiary system continues to be on improving outcomes for all learners, with particular emphasis on participation and achievement for Māori and Pasifika learners. TEOs will also continue to be more responsive to population shifts, changes in demand and performance and learners’ and employers’ needs in different regions.

For TEOs and the tertiary system, the focus remains on contributing to the economy and to skills development, learners navigating the system, increasing knowledge transfer and improvements in governance and management.
