It was announced this week that the government has a new initiative to reinvigorate all of the polytechnic institutions around the country. As of recently, many polytechs have been struggling financially & failing to make their student quota.

The Minister of Education, Chris Hipkins, wants to change this, and has proposed to unify all sixteen polytechnic, as well as to combine all the funding for these institutions across the board.

I also got in touch with James Ranstead, President of the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations.

He shared with me his thoughts on the progress which is taking a step in the right direction, as well as the consultation needed by students themselves.
