Nau Mai Haere From Te Pūkenga CE, Stephen Town

Nau mai haere mai ki Te Pūkenga.

I am really pleased to welcome you to the new Te Pūkenga network! Whitireia and WelTec, is part of our Te Pūkenga network supporting learners like you, right across Aotearoa. 

We’re on a journey right now as we reimagine vocational education and training in New Zealand. We know we need to put you – our learners – right in the centre. This year we’ll be working with many different people to co-design the future way we operate and work. You can read more about our transformation on our website. We will need your help! We’ll be keen to hear your thoughts on any proposals we develop. Your feedback will help us make the system better for current learners just like you, and for those who will come after you. There will be opportunities for you to contribute your feedback right throughout the year – keep a look out on Whitireia and WelTec channels and our website for more information.  We’re eager to hear from you.

Starting a new learning journey is a big deal, and it’s understandable that you might be feeling both excited, and possibly also a bit nervous. Whitireia and WelTec will have a wide range of services available to help you through your learning journey. Be sure to reach out and connect with all the help and support that’s available so we can help make sure your time with us is a success.

All the best to you and your whānau as you embark on this journey.

He akoranga whaihua – kia waihanga i te ao o āpōpō | Learning with purpose, creating our futures.

Ngā mihi
