Industry and Community Partnerships

Serving Our Community

We pride ourselves in being one of the driving forces in the Waikato region but of course we can't do it alone.

By listening and responding to the needs of employers, iwi and community organisations, we are able to create worlds that are as beneficial to our graduates as their employers and the community around them. We also work alongside Te Wananga o Aotearoa, Waikato University and other education providers to make sure that collectively, we are addressing the region's teritary education needs and priorities.

Part of that is offering flexible training arrangements so that people in the community can gain the skills they need while still in the workplace.
