An important part of our role is monitoring the performance of the tertiary education organisations we fund. We monitor everything from course and qualification completion rates to individual organisation’s financial performance. This section shows you how we measure this performance – and includes the latest results.
We provide most of our funding through a process that requires tertiary education organisations (TEOs) to submit an Investment Plan, although some funds are off-plan and some TEOs are managed through a funding letter. This section includes guidance and resources to cover the majority of our funding agreements.
Reporting and data collection is crucial for maintaining a culture of transparency and high performance in tertiary education. With easy-to-follow materials, links, and videos, this section is designed to make accessing and using our tools as easy as possible.
At the Tertiary Education Commission (the TEC) we have around 350 staff. They come from many different backgrounds and have a variety of professional and technical skills. They provide information and advice to tertiary education organisations (TEOs) and the Government, careers services from education through to employment, and foster and maintain effective relationships.
As a funded tertiary education organisation, you may from time to time have contact with other senior staff at the Tertiary Education Commission (the TEC).
