You may have heard about proposed changes to the tertiary education sector called Reform of Vocational Education, or RoVE.

The proposed changes were announced by Education Minister Chris Hipkins in February and the impact of the proposed reforms will be far reaching.

There are three key changes proposed as part of RoVE. These are:

  • New roles for providers and industry bodies - current Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) to be replaced with Industry Skills Bodies, with industry skills training rolled into the local ITPs, such as NMIT
  • A New Zealand Institute of Skills & Technology serving all of New Zealand
  • A unified funding system

The RoVE website(external link) has more details about the reform proposals.
