The economy is growing and there simply aren’t enough people with the right skills for the jobs available. In order to meet this challenge the tertiary education sector is changing to allow institutes to focus on their unique contribution to meeting the skills gaps at the regional and national levels. Our distinctive role is to provide skills for employment and social development. The key is to ensure that our courses and programmes provide real linkages to employment or future training at higher levels – and more importantly, meet your needs.
