Students and employers are our customers, along with colleagues in the organisation. We drive our organisation from their needs, and act with purpose, creativity and energy to exceed their expectations.

Valuing People - Whakamana i te tangata

We treat everyone with courtesy and respect, without prejudice and valuing different perspectives. We involve and listen to others, and recognise them for their contribution; always acting with integrity.
