Te Pūkenga Network

Otago Polytechnic is part of Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology, together with all the other polytechnics in New Zealand. Te Pūkenga's vision is to reimagine vocational education for Aotearoa New Zealand.

About Te Pukenga Heaader

From 2023, all Otago Polytechnic learners will be enrolled with Te Pūkenga, instead of Otago Polytechnic. Right now, our people will continue to support our learners. They will still be enrolled in the same qualification and will continue to learn in the same way, in the same place, with the same people.

Being a part of Te Pūkenga means we will be more connected to the other organisations delivering vocational and applied education in Aotearoa New Zealand and we will work with them to share skills and knowledge to better help you succeed.

We are excited to be part of Te Pūkenga which has been set up as part of the Government’s Reform of Vocational Learning. Te Pūkenga is creating a network of online, on-campus and on-job learning to give learners more flexibility in what, where and how they learn.

You will see more communication about this change over the next few months. We want to reassure you that the learning of our ākonga will remain our priority.

If you have any questions or would like more information about this change you can find more on our website at Otago Polytechnic or contact us by phone / email at tepukenga@op.ac.nz.
