Tai Poutini Polytechnic and Te Pūkenga
Tai Poutini Polytechnic is part of Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology.
Enrolling in a programme with Tai Poutini Polytechnic in 2023 means that you will now graduate with a Te Pūkenga qualification.
Te Pūkenga brings the Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and the arranging training activities of certain Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) together to create a national network. This will give learners more choices and flexibility in what, where, and how they learn.
Existing Tai Poutini Polytechnic ākonga (learners) will be enrolled with Te Pūkenga automatically in the same qualification and will continue to learn in the same way, in the same place, with the same people.
The great news is that this enables us to share skills and knowledge across a network of passionate education providers to help you succeed.
Learners should note that all programmes offered across Te Pūkenga are under review to ensure they are portable, consistent, aligned with the industry's needs and may be changed. Where there are changes to programmes that you have applied to enrol in, you will be notified of these changes.
