The tertiary education system is a significant national asset and is recognised as being of crucial importance to New Zealand’s social and economic development.
Over recent years, there have been a number of concerns about how tertiary education institutions are managed and the quality of the education they provide.
I have initiated several inquiries into aspects of tertiary education sector entities and maintain a strong interest in the operations of this very important sector.
