The Government are proposing major changes to Vocational Education in New Zealand because some polytechnics are running at a loss.
This could mean all trade apprenticeships are run through a national Government-directed polytechnic.
Currently ITOs are directed by industry members and facilitate apprenticeships in the workplace, in addition to off-job training.
This system works well – please vote to keep ITOs as they are!
You can write feedback and sign our petition – these now close on April 5th 2019.
Stuck for how to write your submission???
Have a look at one of these examples from HITO!
