Strategic partnership

WelTec and Whitireia are strategic partners delivering more choice to students.

WelTec and Whitireia are two long-established and highly-successful Institutes of Technology, widely respected by employers and with excellent student success rates.

Our two institutes work in partnership to serve the interests of students, communities and industry.

This means that WelTec and Whitireia can provide the best possible study choices for students in the Wellington region and beyond.

Between us we have more than 140 years of training students. Together we provide choice and access to learning and services across our campuses in Wellington, Porirua, Kāpiti, Petone and Auckland.

Recently we have worked together to develop high quality facilities like Te Kāhui Auaha, our new creative campus in Wellington, opening in March 2018. Developments like this ensure that our students have the best possible learning environments.

The partnership between WelTec and Whitireia is driven by a commitment to put students first, by providing more choice, more opportunity and improved experience.

Our partnership is important, but so are our roots and our connections to the local communities that have supported us and who we have served over many years. Each Institute of Technology retains strong links to its local community and iwi which will continue to grow and flourish.

The partnership between WelTec and Whitireia is unique in New Zealand. It provides an exciting opportunity to follow a path which provides the best possible professional and vocational education for students, while respecting and maintaining the distinctive strengths of two high quality tertiary institutions.
