What we've done

We met on 25 October and identified priority areas of work for the transition period through to December 2022. We committed to ensuring continuity and a smooth transition for international students over the next few years. 

What we're working on this month

We're gathering evidence and data, and working with Education NZ, TEC, NZQA, and the Ministry of Education to ensure our data is up-to-date, robust, and relevant. We're also identifying any data gaps that could be important focus areas for the new institute's council post-April.

Coming up

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