Results for Supporting Learners
This collaborative project will identify critical success factors and effective models for Pasifika learners, including those generally applicable to industry training, and specific to the training models of ITOs. The project is designed to develop industry tailored toolkits on implementing and evaluating success strategies for supporting Pacific learners in industry training.
This project aims to explore the factors that are associated with apprentices and industry trainees at levels 3 and 4 not completing their qualification.
This project focuses on testing a new collaborative approach to mentoring between an employer, Downer NZ, and four ITO's: Infratrain, ESITO, Water IT, and NZHITO.

It sits within the kaupapa of reo Māori revitalisation, and contributes to ensuring te reo Māori remains a living spoken language.
Effective learner voice is central to a high-quality tertiary education system. New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA) has implemented a network of panels designed to gather direct learner input, feedback and commentary on education-related issues. The panels, known as the Learner Advisory Panel Project (LAPP), are conducted through an innovative online model designed to address some of the commonly reported barriers to learner participation in feedback systems.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to improve the ability of tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
Assessments are the primary means with which student academic success is measured, yet students transitioning from secondary school into large first-year classes often struggle to understand the assessment task and structures at university. This project aims to identify student assessment problems and introduce strategies to address these.
