Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) CEO, Liam Sloan says the course completion rate is important because it clearly demonstrates that learners are receiving the support they need to obtain knowledge and skills and to contribute towards completion of a qualification.
“Obviously I am delighted with this first place ranking because it highlights the commitment, improvement, drive and passion that the team at NMIT has for working with each and every one of our learners to help them achieve results. This result clearly demonstrates that the team does a great job at providing the levels of support required for our learners to succeed,” said Sloan.
In 2017 NMIT was ranked 4th for learner course completion rates, meaning the 2018 result is a significant improvement in ranking.
“These results combined with our unique course offerings and specialisations, including aquaculture, viticulture and wine, maritime, aviation engineering and conservation, demonstrate the important role of NMIT in the sector,” said Sloan.
The Institute was also placed first for completion rates for both Māori and Pasifika learners during 2018. These rankings are produced following assessment against performance of all sixteen Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs).
Education Performance Indicators or EPIs are produced annually by TEC providing a ranking on how well tertiary providers are helping their learners achieve. The course completion indicator shows the proportion of courses that were successfully completed in a given year. It indicates how successful a provider is in helping their students to complete courses.
