Decisions and next steps
On Thursday 6 October, Acting Chief Executive Peter Winder announced decisions and next steps on Tā tātou huarahi | Our pathway: Te Pūkenga organisational direction and design.
The design organises Te Pūkenga around nine vocational pathways (Ako Delivery Networks) and empowers four regions to respond to local need, working with employers, industry, unions, and communities.
Regions will give effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and our Charter obligations at management, operational and delivery levels, reflecting Tiriti partnerships between Te Pūkenga Council and iwi and hapū.
The next phase of establishment will involve running several smaller consultations with overlapping timelines. Our focus will be on kaimahi affected by those designs proposal and minimising the disruption to delivery.
