An Overview of New Zealand’s Vocational Education and Training System
The New Zealand vocational education and training (VET) system is esteemed for the flexible use of blended, online, off-job and on-job learning models to get students employment-ready.
At Skills Consulting Group, we work closely with government agencies in NZ and around the world to ensure policy enables strong vocational education and workforce development outcomes.
We have created an overview of the New Zealand system which details how Central Government, public and private education providers, and employers work together to ensure:
- Lifelong learning and flexible vocational pathways
- Graduates who are creative, flexible thinkers with practical skills
- An industry-led and employer shaped system that ensures relevance of skills
- Credible and robust qualifications which are nationally and internationally recognised
