Tā tātou huarahi | Our pathway:
Te Pūkenga organisational
direction and design

We are engaging on the proposed organisation and leadership structure of Te Pūkenga.

The engagement period is now open for Tā tātou huarahi | Our pathway: Te Pūkenga organisational direction and design.

From Monday 15 August to Friday 2 September, Te Pūkenga is seeking feedback on a proposed organisation and leadership structure.

It has been designed to fulfil our Charter commitments to ākonga, with their whānau, Te Tiriti o Waitangi partners, employers and our priority communities – Māori, Pacific and disabled people.

By bringing together Ako Delivery Networks (teaching, training, learner wellbeing and employer functions) and regions, we are proposing a unified structure that will build on the strengths of on-the-job, on-campus and online vocational and applied learning.

Providing feedback 

During this engagement period, our main priority is receiving feedback from kaimahi (staff) in Te Pūkenga Network. This includes our Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs), Transitional Industry Training Organisations (TITOs), Work Based Learning (WBL) divisions, Te Pūkenga business divisions and National Office.

Kaimahi have been given details on how they can provide feedback.

If you are outside of Te Pūkenga Network and would like to provide comment on the engagement document, please complete this questionnaire. Alternatively, you can email feedbackom@tepukenga.ac.nz. All feedback will be considered, with priority weighting given to Te Pūkenga Network kaimahi.


Timeframes and next steps

The engagement period is open from Monday 15 August to Friday 2 September.

Acting Chief Executive Peter Winder is visiting kaimahi in our Network during this period. The hui schedule is available here, and details are being promoted through local Network channels.

We will collate and analyse the feedback in the first two weeks of September and share the decisions with our Network and stakeholders in late September.

This engagement does not propose any impact to kaimahi in the wider network. Kaimahi will get a sense of where they will fit in the proposed structure but this will not be a consultation process about their job.

Following this period of engagement there will be a series of targeted consultations as we move function by function through this process. At this stage we don’t know which functions will change first. What we do know is that we need to do this in a way that means, as a Network, we continue to deliver our core services.
