Mā te mahi ngātahi, ka angitū – success requires all of us to play our part

We face a challenge. Learner success for all is paramount to a successful and thriving New Zealand. However, many learners, particularly Māori and Pacific peoples, face barriers that affect their participation and completion rates.

To break down some of those barriers, we need to work together as a sector. The team at the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) brought together people from across the education sector and wider community at the Ōritetanga conference. This was an opportunity to learn, discuss and be motivated by local and international approaches that put learners at the centre of the tertiary education system.

We are building on this conference by working with tertiary providers to build capability and leadership. This will include a wider discussion about the learner success approach and an eventual roll out across all tertiary providers. We will be progressively uploading videos and content from the conference on this page.

Let's create a tertiary education system that works for all
