Around 400 members of the public, including local Iwi, Pasifika, elected officials, business stakeholders and community groups, gathered in our Hub to hear from Education Minister Chris Hipkins and TEC Chief Executive Tim Fowler. 

The consultation period has now ended and Otago Polytechnic has submitted its alternative model to the Government.

We would like to acknowledge the depth of support we have enjoyed from a wide cross-section of the community - from learners and parents, to elected officials, businesses and stakeholders, to various global partners.

We are humbled by and grateful for your support. 

A Government decision is expected in June.
