The government's Tertiary Education Strategy seeks to encourage all New Zealanders to adopt learning as a way of life and to make it easy for them to do so. We are overseeing implementation of that strategy.
The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) Te Amorangi Matauranga Matua, is a crown entity established under Section 159C of the Education Act 1989.
The TEC is responsible for funding all post-compulsory education and training offered by universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, wananga, private training establishments, foundation education agencies, industry training organisations and adult and community education providers.
One of our key roles is to oversee implementation of the Tertiary Education Strategy and associated set of priorities.
We are taking an active role in facilitating collaboration and cooperation in the tertiary education system, and a greater system connectedness to wider New Zealand businesses, communities, iwi and enterprises.
