TPP Future – 2018
Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP) is working with the West Coast community, our industry partners and the Government to secure the future of tertiary education and vocational training in the region.
It’s well-known that TPP faces some real financial and strategic challenges. Our focus is on meeting the training needs of Coast students and Coast businesses while we come up with a new way of working that ensures the ongoing delivery of quality, sustainable tertiary education on the Coast.
The Government has shown its commitment to providing tertiary training on the West Coast, with the appointment of a Crown Manager to assist TPP and ongoing financial support to ensure operations continue while plans for the future are progressed.
At the beginning of 2018, the Government confirmed funding support into 2019 to keep TPP running while plans to better support tertiary training providers at a regional and national level are developed. The work TPP has done to date puts us in a strong position to take part in this sector-wide review and prepare for the future.
TPP has enjoyed the support of the community throughout this process of future planning. Our relationships with local community leaders, interest groups, employers and industry partners are crucial to our future success and we want to work with people across the region to get the plan right.
We will keep everyone updated on progress throughout the year with regular information posted here on our website and provided directly to our regional partners. If you have any questions please contact us at email@example.com
