The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is working with the sector to develop a nationwide careers system strategy that delivers for everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Developing a new careers system strategy

In 2017 the TEC became the lead government agency responsible for careers after merging with Careers New Zealand. A careers system strategy was finalised in 2019 with input from the education sector, employers, careers practitioners and learners.

Many of the initiatives in that initial strategy are now complete or well advanced. The TEC has also listened to calls from the sector around the need for a refreshed, broader strategy.

The new careers system strategy will focus on strengthening and future-proofing New Zealand’s careers system. The TEC will work closely with key stakeholders to ensure it is fit-for-purpose and sustainable. The strategy will take into account related strategies in the education sector, such as the Tertiary Education Strategy.

We will publish information and updates on the strategy’s development on this page – check the News section for the latest news on the strategy.
