TEC Roadshow 2016

This page provides information about the 2016 TEC Roadshow as part of our ongoing engagement with tertiary education organisations (TEOs). We will update this page as more information is available.

Two Roadshow sessions – morning and afternoon

We will be travelling to four regional centres to give TEOs an update on our business plan. We hope this will also be an opportunity to discuss issues and topics.

We’ve divided the Roadshow into two parts:

1. The morning session will be presented by our senior management team, and be an opportunity to:

  • hear about our work programme
  • see a demonstration of the tools we’ll be launching for the sectors use
  • discuss the topical issues in the tertiary sector.

This strategic session is aimed at the leadership teams of all TEOs.

2. The afternoon session follows the usual TEC Roadshow format, and has practical advice and updates for those working with us on a regular basis. We expect this session is relevant to staff involved in SDR reporting and ICT teams.

Please select the session – morning or afternoon – that best suits you.

Proposed agenda

Morning session 10.00am – 12.00pm
