Reform of Vocational Education: Have your say

The Government has proposed wide-ranging changes to vocational education in New Zealand. There are three proposals open for public consultation. The proposed reforms will:

  • Create a national institution, replacing the 16 existing polytechnics and institutes of technology
  • Disband Industry Training Organisations (ITOs)
  • Centralise the funding system

MITO, is concerned that the wide-ranging reforms proposed to vocational education in New Zealand will exacerbate skills shortages, seriously undermine the apprenticeship and training system and believes the proposal is a step too far.

MITO invite you to let them and the government know what you think about the proposed reforms at mito.org.nz/haveyoursay   HAVE YOUR SAY – Industry Training

Be quick! Consultation is open until 27 March.  Feel free to talk to your local MP.

Here are two documents that MITO has asked us to share:
