Update on Te Pūkenga executive structure and organisational direction

benstevens eNews, News, NZ Apprenticeships, RoVE

Yesterday, Peter Winder acting Chief Executive shared the decisions from Tā tātou huarahi | Our pathway: Te Pūkenga organisational direction and design engagement.

In August Te Pūkenga engaged on Tā tātou huarahi | Our pathway: Te Pūkenga organisational direction and design. Through this process, almost 3,000 pieces of feedback was received both from our kaimahi (staff) and external stakeholders. The decisions from this have been shared across our Te Pūkenga network and you can view these on the Te Pūkenga website  Engagement | Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology (tepukenga.ac.nz)

The leadership structure announcement is part of the planned establishment pathway for Te Pūkenga, the New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology and represents the next phase of organisational design based on a formal consultation process undertaken earlier in the year. 

The confirmed design delivers a leadership structure designed to ensure the ongoing support of vocational and applied teaching and learning across the rōpū as we transition to a unified education provider.

While Te Pūkenga moves into the next phase of establishment, we at Connexis are committed to continuing our service uninterrupted to our employers and learners.

Thank you to those who took the time to share their thoughts through the most recent engagement process.

If you have any questions on how these changes may impact you or your organisation please contact askus@connexis.org.nz 

Connexis hosting industries previously serviced by Skills Org TITO

On Monday 3rd October, Connexis were part of the Te Pūkenga pōwhiri hosted at Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae at MIT in Auckland (MIT Marae) welcoming Skills kaimahi into Te Pūkenga Work Based Learning (WBL).

In total 95 kaimahi (staff) from Skills have transitioned to Te Pūkenga with around 2000 employers nationally and annually around 5,000 workplace apprentices and trainees across the motu. Connexis will be home to 88 kaimahi, along with employers and learners that have transitioned across to Te Pūkenga Work Based Learning, with a small number from the services industry transitioning into ServiceIQ Division.

We are continuing to work with the WBL transition team, with our focus to support the new team in settling in and ensuring they have the resources and systems available so their service to their industries, employers and learners continues smoothly throughout the transition phase.
