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.
We've gathered evidence and data, and working with Education NZ, TEC, NZQA, and the Ministry of Education, ensured our data is up-to-date, robust, and relevant. We also identified data gaps that could be important focus areas for the new institute's council post-April.
The strawman report including our recommendations has been shared with the IST Establishment Board for feedback, testing and validation. Once feedback is received we will further refine our recommendations.
We'll take into account all the feedback received and finalise our recommendations for the new Council.
