Our communities and partners

We are changing

At CPIT and Aoraki Polytechnic we know that industry alignment is essential to our graduates' success and the new organisation will continue to build on our relationships with industry, business and community partners. 

We are looking forward to continuing to work with our partners as the new organisation takes shape through the transition and implementation phases. Our focus on industry relevant programmes and work ready graduates remains as strong as ever.

The new organisation will still have tutors who are experts in their fields, programmes closely linked to industry and graduates who have the skills and experience to be effective employees. We are continuing to work with our industry and community partners to inform them that the new organisation will continue to build on the excellent reputation earned by CPIT and Aoraki Polytechnic.

We will create a new organisation that supports key regional areas through targeted programmes and Centres of Excellence. We know Canterbury will be excited about a new region-wide tertiary training institute and that our industry partners and communities want to be involved in the future of innovative tertiary vocational training.
