Reform of Vocational Education Survey 2019

Closed 5 Apr 2019

Opened 13 Feb 2019


Thank you for taking an interest in the Reform of Vocational Education. We want to hear your views on these proposals. The changes we propose are complex, and we need the detailed knowledge and the different perspectives of people across New Zealand to get them right.

The government is seeking feedback on the proposals by Friday 5 April 2019.

The questions posed in this survey can be also found in the Reform of Vocational Education consultation discussion document.

We recommend that you read the consultation document to understand the proposals before answering the questions.

If you’re looking for more detail on any of the three main proposals, there are also three technical discussion documents with more information that officials are looking for your thoughts to help shape advice to Government. Questions posed in these technical documents are also provided in this survey. The technical discussion documents are linked here:

What happens next

How your feedback will be used

We expect that many people will be interested in having a say on the future of vocational education in New Zealand. Everyone’s feedback is welcome. Officials will carefully consider what we’ve heard in engagement meetings, along with the feedback that is sent in to the survey, email address and phone line.

The Minister and Cabinet will receive a summary of all the feedback, which will inform their decisions about the Reform of Vocational Education. You can expect to hear about these decisions around mid-2019.

Officials will also continue to draw on feedback and ask for more conversations as we work through how to implement the Government’s decisions.
