Performance information

A key responsibility for the Tertiary Education Commission is to monitor the performance of tertiary education providers.

TEC has published the Tertiary Education Performance Report, providing in one annual document the key measures used by TEC to assess performance across New Zealand’s tertiary education organisations. The Tertiary Education Performance Reports provide a historic view of institutional performance using already published performance information.

There are two types of performance information which provide details about:

Infographic posters - learners in the tertiary sector 2013

To complement the 2013 Tertiary Education Performance Report and other information the TEC publishes, a number of infographic posters have been produced that focus on the performance and participation of all learners in the tertiary sector as well as Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) priority groups (Youth, Māori and Pasifika).

The infographic posters were published in January 2015. In early March, a range of minor errors were identified in the infographic poster series. The series has now been revised and updated versions are available below.

If you downloaded any of the original infographic posters between 15 January 2015 and 17 March 2015, please replace them with the updated versions: Version 2.0.
