2011 Performance

Future focus of the tertiary sector

As in previous years, funding increases across the tertiary education sector are unlikely in the foreseeable future, thus maintaining the pressure for efficiency and collaboration.

TEOs will need to continue developing strong self-management and demonstrate the willingness and ability to respond to Government priorities. In the coming years greater emphasis will be placed on lifting achievement of the Government’s priority groups (youth, Māori and Pasifika students) with the aim of achieving parity with other students.
