The final board meeting held at the Wintec city campus on Monday, was also supported and attended by Te Pūkenga representatives. It was an opportunity for board members to acknowledge the significant journey they have been on with Wintec and to formally hand over all the key documentation around strategic directions and operations to support the seamless transition into Te Pūkenga.
Wintec Board Chair Niwa Nuri spoke to the significant change the board has been instrumental in supporting.
“Our board is extremely proud to be part of, and fully supports the successful transition of Wintec into Te Pūkenga. It is exciting times ahead for the sector and the future of Te Pūkenga.
“It has been great to be part of the process to transition early from a governance perspective, and we fully support the vision and aspirations of Te Pūkenga to enhance vocational education in Aotearoa.”
Nuri added: “I’d like to thank all our Wintec board members, both present and from the past, for their mahi and direction over the years. I am proud of all that Wintec has achieved, and it will continue to thrive as part of Te Pūkenga.”
