ITP Sector Collaboration Practices Project

ITP Sector Collaboration Practices ProjectAs core contributors to the New Zealand tertiary sector, Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) are committed to enhancing the experiences and achievements of our students through engaging with community, regional, national and international partners. The ITP Sector Collaboration Practices Project reports on a number of effective collaborations between ITPs and other stakeholders and evaluates the factors that make for successful collaborations. The government expects tertiary education providers to work with each other and with other key stakeholders for a variety of purposes: from improving operating efficiency to increasing learning opportunities for students. Collaborative ways of working together are seen as particularly beneficial for the ITP sector.
