Who's the best provider for my needs?

There's no exact measure of which provider is best. However, there are some key performance indicators you may wish to consider when determining which TEOs to work with.

Try comparing information from different TEOs[1] about:

Completion rates The percentage of learners that successfully complete the course or qualification.
Destinations The percentage of learners that go on to employment or further study.
Financial viability The stability of the TEO - their track record.
Student support services How comprehensive and accessible these are.
Facilities Physical or online - how appropriate are these.
Value for money The overall cost of participation.
Quality assurance The process of ensuring qualifications are of agreed standard.

We collate a range of performance information from the TEOs we fund. The Ministry of Education also provides tertiary education statistics.
