Board representative: Brett O'Riley

Facilitator: Phil Ker (Otago Polytechnic)

Establishment Unit Principal Advisor: Helen Kilber

Members: Adrienne Dawson (BCITO); Amanda Knowles (SIT); Andrea Leslie (Primary ITO); Ariana Te Whetu (Tokona te Raki); Dr Caroline Seelig (OPNZ); Gill Genet (Careerforce); Gus Gilmore (MIT); Hilary Scott-Ker (City & Guilds); Mark Marshall (Ara); Nathan Laurie (Otago Polytechnic)

What we've done

We've generated an outline of what success looks like for this workstream and drafted a learner-centred map of national institute products and services and associated enabling capabilities. We've generated our initial 'big ideas' and a first cut of our strategic priorities. There's a positive, forward-looking spirit in the group.

What we're working on this month

Our learner-centred map is an anchoring framework so we're spending some time getting feedback on this. We're also working on a shared terminology and bridging the understanding between ITPs and ITOs.

Coming up

An early draft of our recommendations and thinking will be presented to the Establishment Board on 10 December.
