Bay of Plenty Tertiary Partnership

Priority One works closely with the Bay of Plenty Tertiary Partnership (Bay of Plenty Polytechnic, University of Waikato, Waiariki Institute of Technology and Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi) to develop a comprehensive, regional tertiary education and research system (vocational through to PhD) aligned to specific industry and community needs.  This is a unique model in New Zealand, with the four institutions sharing facilities and undertaking joint strategic planning, delivery, support and promotion of academic programmes.  High quality tertiary education and research activity, aligned with regional needs, is fundamental to supporting business development and sustainable economic growth.
