Polytechnics International New Zealand Limited (PINZ) CEO, Honè McGregor attended India’s International Conference on Community Colleges – "Mainstreaming Skills in Education – Creating Relevant Human Resources" in New Delhi in February 2013. The themes of the conference were access, equity, excellence and employability. Particular focus was on exploring best practice for industry engagement in order to produce work-ready graduates.
In a session on Education for Work, Honè provided an overview of the New Zealand ITP sector and PINZ's mechanisms for industry engagement in governance, teaching, and program and qualification development. Participants included government agencies, industry partners and training institutions that have been designated as community colleges. In a pilot scheme to start in 2013, these institutions will undergo significant change management processes involving new models in governance, organizational structure, curriculum development, industry engagement and quality assurance. PINZ was one of two New Zealand representatives in an international field. Participation was supported by Education New Zealand.
