Voices from Tertiary Education


In early March, staff, students, business, industry trainers, sector leaders and policy makers will come together to discuss the future of tertiary education at two forums.

Vocational education and training will be the subject of the first forum taking place on 1 March. The following week, on 9 March, the future of our universities will come under the spotlight.

Ahead of the forums, the Voices from Tertiary Education Project will feature blog pieces from some of the thinkers participating in the forums covering what they think are the key issues facing tertiary education.

We hope these blogs will start a conversation about what we want tertiary education to look like in the future. You can take part in the kōrero by commenting on the posts, sharing them on social media and sending us your own ideas for a future blog post.
