Corporate documents and publications

Our corporate documents explain what we are expected to do, how we will accomplish what is expected of us, and our reporting on what we have achieved.

  • The Minister of Education has made his expectations of NZIST known through his Letter of Expectation.

  • The Minister of Education has outlined Crown funding arrangements in his NZIST Funding letter.

  • In May 2020, we published seven Mobilising the New World interim reports and invited feedback. We’ve now summarised that feedback to produce the Mobilising the New World Summary of Feedback. This valuable feedback, that NZIST’s Council has reviewed, can now be used as additional input for the transformation of New Zealand's vocational education sector, including informing the development of NZIST’s operating model. 

    About Mobilising the New World 

    Seven working groups consisting of 76 people from across the vocational education sector were established by the IST Establishment Board to consider the future of the vocational education once NZIST came into existence. The working groups were asked to think about the future of the provision of vocational education.   

    While the world has shifted due to the 2019 COVID-19 pandemic since these reports were compiled, they are still relevant and important as we navigate our way towards a different way of providing vocational education.   

    The Mobilising the New World Reports can be found here:

  • Te Pae Tawhiti is our Te Tiriti o Waitangi Excellence Framework.  This document is a working draft.

  • Te Pūkenga has a significant transformation programme ahead. Over the next couple of years, vocational education and training as we currently know it will be completely reimagined. In its place will be a new system that will be more cohesive and sustainable, put learners at the very centre, allow better access for all, and ensure equity for Māori.

    The transitional pathway shows how the range of current transformational workstreams are all structure and planned to support the change. The workstreams are an extension of the recommendations received during the extensive national consultation done through Mobilising the New World. They also take into consideration the Te Pukenga Charter and our Letter of Expectation.  

    Central to much of the Te Pūkenga transformation is the operating model workstream. The outcomes of the operating model will inform much of the future work for Te Pūkenga, so the transition pathway only extends as far as the final quarter of 2021. By then, some workstreams may stop or finish, others will be continued, and new ones may be added.

    While shown as a workstream, our commitment to partnership and equity will continue to underpin and support all we do. 

    There are already a significant number of workstreams shown, and there are many others not given such prominence, but that are equally important to support our ‘business as usual’ work, often playing a key role in supporting and progressing the transformational workstream activity.

    Our transitional pathway will be updated as often as possible, and we will maintain an ongoing schedule of connecting and collaborating with our partners and other stakeholders to ensure we continue to work together and align our mahi as we transformation vocational education and training.
