Studying at Wintec | Te Pūkenga next year
Following the new Government’s announcement of its intention to disestablish Te Pūkenga | New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology, please be assured that your programme of study or training will continue as planned while we work through the details of how this change will be implemented.
We are committed to ensuring that organisational changes that need to be made to meet the Government’s expectations do not impact the delivery of our programmes and training for our learners and employers.
If you need access to learner support services or have any concerns, please contact us at email@example.com.
Wintec is part of Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology.
Te Pūkenga brings the Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and the arranging training activities of certain Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) together to create a national network. This will give learners more choices and flexibility in what, where, and how they learn.
Existing Wintec ākonga (learners) will be enrolled with Te Pūkenga automatically in the same qualification and will continue to learn in the same way, in the same place, with the same people.
Being part of Te Pūkenga means we will be more connected to the other organisations delivering vocational and applied education in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and we will work with them to share skills and knowledge to better help learners succeed. We are excited to be part of Te Pūkenga, which has been set up as part of the Government’s Reform of Vocational Learning (ROVE).

From 2023 all references to Wintec or Waikato Institute of Technology on this website (and any documentation linked through this website) need to be read as references to Te Pūkenga and its Wintec business division.
Learners should note that all programmes offered across Te Pūkenga are under review to ensure they are portable, consistent and aligned with the needs of industry and may be changed. Where there are changes to programmes that you have applied to enrol in, you will be notified of these changes.
