NZAPEP Welcomes Appointments

"The New Zealand Association of Private Education Providers (NZAPEP) welcomes the appointments of the Hon. Dr. Michael Cullen as Minister for Tertiary Education and Hon Jim Anderton as Associate Minister for Tertiary Education.

“The appointment of Dr Cullen shows the Government’s commitment to obtain value for its expenditure, something which the Association endorses,” said Paul Decker, President of NZAPEP.

“The Association has worked together with previous Ministers and achieved positive outcomes which have benefited the entire sector. We look forward to working with Dr Michael Cullen and Jim Anderton and continuing the good work.”

Established in 1991, NZAPEP is the largest association representing private tertiary education providers in New Zealand.”
