2012 Performance

Future focus of the tertiary sector

Improving outcomes in line with government priorities and the TES will remain integral to the future focus of the tertiary sector. This includes contributing to the economy through skills development and knowledge transfer, and maintaining an emphasis on lifting the achievement of the Government’s priority groups (youth, Māori and Pasifika students) to achieve parity of outcomes for all students.

The continuing challenges in the operating environment will maintain the pressure for efficiency and collaboration across the sector and the need for governance and management that readily responds to changes in learners’ and employers’ needs, population shifts, and changes in demand and performance.
