The Investment Plan justifies TEC's ongoing investment in Waiariki and supports provision of quality vocational education in subjects which have been prioritised by Waiariki Council and the Senior Management Team as meeting the needs of students, employers, and communities within the Waiariki rohe and further afield across New Zealand. For 2013 Waiariki's Plan also provides indicative priority subjects and volume of delivery for 2014 and 2015. The Strategic Plan is the outcome of a collaborative strategic review process, undertaken from September 2010 and led by us, Waiariki Institute of Technology Council, to which a wide range of stakeholders have contributed, including Te Mana Matauranga and the Chief Executive.  The purpose of He Kupu Whakataki has been to encourage and disseminate research and scholarship in vocational issues from an indigenous perspective.
