AMPTEE welcomes new Education Secretary

AMPTEE welcomes new Education Secretary

The Aotearoa Providers of Training, Education and Employment welcome the appointment of Karen Sewell as the new Secretary for Education. With many years of experience at the coal face coupled with a deep knowledge of government education process, Karen brings excellent skills and knowledge to this role.

Samantha Lundon, AMPTEE Co-Chair states ‘Of all the sectors in Education, it is tertiary education that is facing the greatest change. If we are to ensure all New Zealanders and not just the privileged have access to opportunities, we need to support those in the sector who are meeting the needs and expectations of students, businesses and iwi’

The AMPTEE Executive meet quarterly with the key government agencies and look forward to hosting Karen in her new role. Of primary importance to AMPTEE is the role that Māori Providers play in providing quality options for many Māori learners. The current governments’ reforms have seen a significant decrease in the number of Māori Providers as the funding priority shifts to state owned Institutions.
