The Plan Guidance for the 2018 investment round has been released. If you’re a TEO with an Investment Plan expiring in 2018 and you’re seeking more than $3 million in TEC funding for 2019, you will need to submit a new Plan next year. The Plan Guidance will provide you with the information we will be looking for.

This year we are introducing an Investment Toolkit. The Toolkit contains a suite of products and templates that will support your strategic planning and will help inform your communications with the TEC.

Information is available now with more becoming available in February 2018.

We have put a strong focus on parity next year. We have set the target, that by 2022 we will achieve patterns of participation and achievement for Māori and Pasifika on par with other learners. Over time, these patterns will deliver parity of post-study outcomes as well.

Although challenging, we believe this goal is achievable. The moral, social and economic arguments for it are compelling – we must have a system that delivers good outcomes for all New Zealanders. We will work with TEOs to understand what changes will be most effective and how we can ensure they are made. The discussions will inform the ongoing design of our activity under our Tū Māia e te Ākonga and Pasifika Operational Strategies.

We look forward to working collaboratively with the TEOs over the coming year to improve the way we work to deliver better outcomes for learners.
