Wintec is a leader in international education, onshore and offshore
Our aim is to develop our expertise in export education and our local and global alliances to enable us to deliver internationally-relevant, quality education services wherever they are needed in the world. This includes extending our capability beyond the delivery of international quality-assured programmes in New Zealand and abroad, to the successful management of major off-shore consultancy and joint venture activities.
We are a modern organisation
Our aim is to be recognised as a financially well-performing, modern organisation, which delivers financial, social and environmental benefits for our customers and the wider communities.

Our strong reputation for providing practical solutions to industry-identified problems, for leading knowledge and technology transfer between ourselves and industry, and our high-quality research facilities, enable us to attract commercial and industry partners. Our applied research strengthens our reputation for quality, research-informed vocational teaching.
