Wintec provides hands-on, applied training and customized programmes to meet the changing needs of communities and their economies. The primary principles underlying Wintec approaches to teaching and learning are:

- Student-centred teaching to promote authentic learning

- Inquiry-based learning and teaching which ensures learner engagement

- Flexible learning which provides learners with choices regarding their learning experiences in terms of when, where and how learning occurs, and the types of assessment and pathways used

Wintec's mission is to build stronger communities through education, research and career development. Mā te mātauranga, te rangahau, me te whai mahi e ora ai te iwi
