Release: Industry Training Federation

Tertiary Education Advisory Commission Membership Announcement

“Now that the waiting is over, we’re keen to get on with the work in a constructive and positive manner,” said Paul Williams, Executive Director of the Industry Training Federation regarding the announcement of the membership of the Tertiary Education Advisory Commission (the Commission).

“These eight people will not be able to achieve much without the support of the tertiary sector. The Industry Training Federation supports the Commission and looks forward to the opportunity to work with the members,” he said.

“Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) have achieved a great deal in the last eight years – the future success of the sector will depend on the development of a fully integrated strategy for tertiary education in New Zealand,” said Mr Williams.
